We have been working hard over the last year to become certified by the Green Restaurant Association and as of this week, we are official!
Extra Thyme Catering and Extra Thyme Cafe (the corporate cafeteria in Graybar Electric's Westport location) have been awarded Two-Star Certification from the Green Restaurant Association (GRA). Extra Thyme is one of only three restaurants (and the only caterer) in Missouri to gain GRA certification. To achieve certification, restaurants undergo a detailed assessment process that looks at everything from the food and packaging they use to waste disposal and energy consumption. Each business must meet a certain point total within specified categories to meet certification requirements. To see exactly how we achieved our points, click on the GRA logo above.
I've been "preachin' Green" for years and decided that I finally needed to go beyond basic recycling when it came to how environmentally sustainable my business would be. All of us at Extra Thyme are very excited to receive this recognition and that our achievement can help you and your businesses achieve some of your sustainability goals without any work on your part. When you eat in our Cafe's or order Catering from us you can rest assured that you are lessening your impact on the environment.
