CENTENNIAL, CO -- Vistar, the nation's largest distributor of vending and OCS products, has partnered with several suppliers to bring operators environmentally friendly breakroom disposables. They include hot and cold cups, plates and bowls, utensils, napkins and paper towels.
The supplies from Solo, Berkley Square, Silver Source, Tork and Chinet -- part of Vistar's new "green initiative" to help create a healthier environment and reduce waste -- are compostable, recyclable or biodegradable. Some are made with post-consumer recycled materials, while others are composed completely of plant-based, renewable resources.
Vistar's green initiative includes a variety of tools and resources to educate operators on transitioning to environmentally friendly products and the advantages of buying "green." A complete list of the products and information about them is available at vistar.com.
