Campagnolo ROMA Creates Zero Waste

Restauranteurs Tom Doughty and Robert Belcham and Executive Chef Ted Anderson have been working to transform their entire restaurant family (Campagnolo Restaurant, Fat Dragon Bar-B-Q and Campagnolo ROMA) into environmentally friendly, socially conscious, zero waste businesses.  The goal of a zero waste business is to eliminate landfill garbage which creates harmful greenhouse gases.

Campagnolo ROMA is the first of the three restaurants to complete the transition and has been enrolled in the Recycle – Now! Total Solution program since opening day. Recycle-Now! is assisting Campagnolo ROMA to create zero waste. All waste products created by the restaurant are recycled for reuse; paper, cardboard, soft and hard plastics, glass and plastic containers are recycled, even food is recycled through composting and local soil production.

Campagnolo ROMA Environmental Initiatives:

Paper Products – ROMA uses only recyclable and biodegradable take-out containers, cutlery and paper towels. All paper used in house is made of 100% recycled material. Eliminated waste by 100% – There is no dumpster onsite; only containers for separating plastics, paper, glass and organics.

Nose to Tail Philosophy – All butchery is done in house allowing the kitchen to use everything from the animal. All trim, bones and offal are used in stocks, broths, gravy, salumi and staff meals.
