All eight of our residential dining units (Whitney, Buckley, South, McMahon, Putnam, Northwest, North & Gelfenbien) are Certified Green Restaurant®. What does Certified Green Restaurant® mean? The purpose of the GRA standards is to provide a transparent way to measure each restaurant’s environmental accomplishments, while providing a pathway for the next steps each restaurant can take towards increased environmental sustainability.
The seven environmental categories
- Water Efficiency
- Waste Reduction and Recycling
- Sustainable Durable Goods & Building Materials
- Sustainable Food
- Reusables & Environmentally Preferable Disposables
- Chemical and Pollution Reduction
