Our team at prasino is well-educated in organic standards and national certification requirements central to our eco-friendly mission. We can confidently assure our customers we have done extensive research and have found exceptional vendors that work with us in responsible stewardship of the environment.
behind the scenes
prasino is equipped with high-efficiency energy appliances in our kitchens and rest rooms. We insist on the use of "green" cleaning products. Our use of reclaimed, recyclable and sustainable materials contribute to lower greenhouse gases and harmful landfill. Buying local and seasonal food decreases the amount of gas emissions required to transport our ingredients from vendors to our restaurants.
on our plates
prasino requires our food and beverage vendors to provide appropriate government documentation certifying their licenses are fully legitimate and current. All meat and poultry are anti-biotic/hormone-free. Our vendors practice humane treatment in raising livestock, which are all vegetarian fed. The ranchers and farmers we partner with additionally practice sustainability of their land.
every opportunity to make an eco-friendly choice
is implemented at our restaurants. We use cloth napkins and have installed state-of-the-art hand dryers in our rest rooms. Our water system is an alternative to the waste associated with bottled water. Its proprietary filtration technology uses both high tech, active carbon filters and a UV radiation chamber. The process removes bacteria and eliminates impurities, while retaining healthy, thirst-quenching minerals. Our signature glass carafes are dishwasher-safe, reusable and most importantly, do not add to the landfill.
