Our Efforts Towards Sustainability


The Storico Ristorante Group is going greener! We are proud to announce that we are now expanding our sustainability initiatives throughout all restaurants, where we can meet our present needs while working to preserve our planet, so that future generations can meet their future needs. We can see this is the direction the hospitality industry is moving towards, and are proud to spearhead this initiative and to influence others to join us. We are excited for our restaurants to move towards a positive direction that can benefit our planet by reducing our carbon footprint, daily waste and labor. 

 

WHAT WE'VE DONE SO FAR

Replacing most lighting with LED bulbs

Implement non-plastic trash bag liners with a biodegradable alternative

Minimizing daily food waste by means of buying fresh and local as well as high quality foods that are canned, jarred, and dried.

A more permanent menu, meaning less printing as well as a more reliable selection for our guests
