Restaurants are always trying to keep up with the changing times, and that means understanding what diners care about. For one thing, climate change is on the minds of many people. They hunt for buzzwords like sustainability.
Perhaps you have already cut back on plastic use to help the planet and appease your customers. However, one way you may have done this is by switching from plastic straws to paper. Are there other things you can do to reduce paper consumption and help the planet even more?
- E-receipts: More and more customers are open to receiving an electronic receipt rather than a paper one. Another nice advantage is it means you get an email address from your customers that you can use for marketing (assuming you have them sign a privacy agreement and consent when collecting the email address).
- Bar towels: Weighted bar towels can greatly reduce paper towel usage in the kitchen and when a spill occurs in the dining room. You may also want to replace paper towels with reusable rags for cleaning.
- Cloth napkins: Not only does this class the place up, but you also reduce how many paper napkins your customers go through. It is good for the planet and for your overhead.
