2. We Clean, Cleanly - our venue cleaning supplies are all Green Seal certified products; these products reduce both environmental risks and health risks to our guests.
3. We Garden - we're in the midst of creating our own compost system, and use gardening practices in our private outdoor patio to help conserve water and keep the soil healthy.
4. We Partner - when we are limited in expertise or lack resources, we partner with local companies to bring eco-friendly practices into the event space. For example, we now offer food scrap disposal and pickup courtesy of Compost Collective KC.
We look forward to increasing our environmentally-conscious practices for our wedding, corporate, and private event partners.
