Zero Waste Community Partner

A Spice of Life continually keeps the community at the heart of its thriving business. Our priority is to promote the wellness of the environments and people who support us, and in doing so, we may support them as well.

To keep in stride with our values, A Spice of Life adopted the zero waste program in conjunction with Eco-Cycle in 2005. The program enables our company to drastically reduce the amount of waste we produce by composting and recycling. In addition to these practices, we also offer compostable products such as cups and plates made from sugar and corn, as well as utensils made from recyclable products.

Most people have (hopefully) been recycling for years, but many are still unsure of what it means to compost. This green practice is a process that helps to put our waste back into the earth, decompose, and turn into nutrient rich soil. The key is not just to USE those compostable products, but to also ensure that they are being disposed of properly to so the process can even take place! Next time you’re at A Spice of Life event make sure to keep an eye out for those bright green bags! They are made of 100% biodegradable products that decompose and enable the contents to do the same.

From full serviced events to our daily deliveries, each member of the Spice team embraces our zero waste standards and continues to add to Colorado’s green reputation. Aside from the obvious rewards, we also love having the opportunity to educate the community along the way!

Our program has achieved outstanding successes. After only two years, for example, Spice was able to divert over 217,660 pounds of materials.
