BlueCart’s Zero Waste Kitchen effort is about sharing sustainability practices with our community and the world. BlueCart is facilitating this conversation by placing chefs and industry partners in the spotlight to share their best food waste and sustainability insights in an effort to move into a greener future.

Zero Waste Kitchen

BlueCart's Sustainability Initiative

The Sustainability Score represents an aggregate performance of composting, having a food recovery program, minimizing the carbon footprint, and designing and implementing new food waste mitigation strategies. BlueCart recently discovered that chefs that operate with Just-in-Time ordering experience leaner inventories, and thus, waste less food. In addition, using BlueCart’s platform reduces the carbon footprint by eliminating paper from thousands of transactions. Our partners, our chefs, BlueCart, and now you, are helping promote a more sustainable environment within the restaurant and hospitality industry.

About the Zero Waste Kitchen

An estimated 70 billion pounds of food is wasted a year. Most food waste initiatives address the food waste problem after it has happened, but there are few initiatives that prevent food waste from happening. BlueCart is the first technology that does just that. By using BlueCart’s application, restaurant users have noticed a 52% in reduction of food waste due to incredible order accuracy. Join us each week to follow our chef's progress to becoming food waste leaders.

We have found 3 chefs in 3 cities: San Francisco, Washington D.C., and New York who are super serious about food waste. Zero Waste Kitchen is our live case study which highlights not only the statistics an average BlueCart user would see on the application, but also tracks the chefs food waste and their carbon footprint! So if you’re someone that’s passionate about food waste, you’ll want to follow us!
