Our Commitment to Sustainability
Snappy Salads has made a commitment to be a good steward of this great Earth, and therefore have chosen to spend a little more to help in this effort. Gathering tables are made from salvaged wood, countertops from recycled materials (porcelain, beer and wine bottles) and the lighting in the dining area are energy efficient. Each location recycles compact fluorescent light bulbs (CFLs) and batteries at no cost and Snappy Salads holds an electronic waste recycling roundup twice a year. Cups, utensils, and take-out containers are made from renewable resources and are compostable, and our straws are made out of paper. Being eco-friendly is just part of who we are.
Cups & Straws
Corn cups look and feel like plastic but are made from a renewable resource – 100% U.S. grown corn.
Our 24-ounce cold cup is made of 100% durable biodegradable compostable corn plastic and is great for serving cold beverages. The non-allergenic cold cup comes with smoothed rolled rims for great drinking comfort.
Snappy Salads introduces the next generation of paper straws by Aardvark.
The Eco-Flex™ paper straw is biodegradable, compostable, 100% chlorine free and always made in the USA. And ours are the only paper straws on the market made with FDA food grade-approved inks and paper.
Even our water is committed to you.
Did you know that bottled water creates a ton of waste? That a lot of times it comes straight for municipal water sources? That shipping it across the country or across the globe uses a disproportionate share of fossil fuels? That’s why we offer our Commitment Water. It is captured rain water that is sourced in Buda, Texas (yes, it is filtered). It’s the most naturally pure water on the market packaged in a biodegradable bottle and sent just a few miles up I-35. It’s the complete package. That’s committed!
