Here at Breakfast Republic we are doing our part in being environmentally friendly.
We are now using several products to reduce, reuse, and recycle!
Swapping Plastic Straws with Metal Straws
Reusable metal straws will now be used, washed, and sanitized for use over and over again. Creating no further plastic pollution to our environment. We’re excited for you to “suck on this” instead!
FOOD WASTE COMPOSTING
Reports have shown that over 35 million tons of food waste is sent to landfills each year. That wasted food accounts for almost 25% of U.S. methane emissions. Methane is a powerful greenhouse gas that is 21 times more harmful to the environment than CO2.
To do our part, Breakfast Republic has joined with Resource Management Group, a local recycling/composting company, to institute a food waste composting program, which captures all food waste from our restaurants. The waste is then either fed to livestock, or composted at a facility in San Diego. This successful program has resulted in us sending over two tons of food waste to compost in the first month alone!
