With our new food waste recycling program with Athens Services,  we were able to take an event for 70 guests  and turn it into  our FIRST  Zero Waste  experience.  The client wanted paper products instead of china and  of course, we do that.  But since we received our  new recycling bin that takes everything but glass and plastic, I got to thinking.  So,  we used our stainless silverware instead of plastic utensils.  Instead of disposable plastic cups,   we used our  re-usable 9 ounce wine tumblers.  We brought the plates and food waste back to the Shoppe’s recycling bin and Voila! We did it!  This is a big day for Jennie Cooks. I  am very proud.
