Today is national America Recycles Day
, a day to spotlight a national initiative to keep America beautiful! For us at LeCroissant Catering this is an exciting day because it allows us to celebrate and highlight our company's Green Mission
that is reflected in all our business practices. We feel it's our responsibility to take a close look at our impact on the environment and do our part to protect our planet and the beautiful country we live in.
Our offices are 100% wind powered through the Blue Sky Renewable Energy Program
, which means all of the electricity we use is offset by wind power energy that we purchase.

Lux Catering and Events is one of the first caterers in Utah that has an award winning, comprehensive recycling system in place. On average, we have 150 lbs of food waste per day - that's 27 tons a year! Instead of taking up space in a landfill, these leftovers will be recycled into fertilizers for city parks and local farms. Over the course of 6 months, we will have recycled enough to fill a dumpster the length of 3o football fields! A variety of items enter our kitchen on a daily basis, but only 4 things end up in a landfill: plastic wrap, tape, gloves, and solid items that accompany food, such as aluminum foil. The rest is recycled or composted!
