With the delicate Valley ecology in mind, Seasons Gourmet Catering provides environmentally-conscious options to help preserve the Earth for future generations.
At Seasons, we take great pride in our artfully presented buffets. We use pewter platters, glass & china bowls, & stainless steel chafing dishes to display our artfully created food. Not only is our upscale serviceware beautiful, but reusable as well, thus eliminating the waste of disposable, non-recyclable trays and bowls. This is our standard presentation & we offer this service at no additional charge to you.
Of course, we can be as formal or informal as you like for any corporate function. For those occassions which call for the convenience or infomality of disposable serviceware, we offer heavy duty disposableware at no additional charge. Rest assured, we take as much care with a pewter tray presentation as we do with plastic. Please let your event specialist know when you place your order if you would prefer disposables.
With your order, we provide standard black plasticware, however, we are proud to offer an eco-friendly alternative ~ VerTerra Dinnerware ~ for a small additional charge.
VerTerra is made from fallen leaves, steam, heat, & pressure only. The plateware is 100% biodegradable, non-toxic & compostable, naturally returning to the earth in 2 months. No plants or trees are ever cut down to make VerTerra products, making it a completely sustainable product. VerTerra is a socially responsible company, producing their product in India at a VerTerra-owned factory where workers receive fair wages, safe working conditions & access to medical care.
Renting china for every day meetings may get a little pricey, but for those companies who have kitchen facilities, it may be a worthy investment for your company and the environment to purchase inexpensive glass or stoneware plates (available for about $1 each.) Many eco-conscious employees even keep reusable plates at their desk for “Bring-Your-Own-Plate” purposes!
Aspenware Compostable Wooden Cutlery
Similar to the plateware, Seasons provides heavy duty black plastic cutlery with each order. For an additional fee, we offer Aspenware natural wood cutlery.
Aspenware uses all natural wood veneers and manufactures superior cutlery while using sustainable forestry practices that do not damage the environment. They use locally sourced, naturally grown wood veneers from end-of-lifecycle trees salvaged from the forest. The utensils are backyard compostable, meaning they turn into soil in an active composter in under 65 days. All materials used in production are FDA approved; including the Kosher certified confectioners coating put on the cutlery to eliminate the wood taste. Aspenware is regulated by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency(CFIA).
