Uncommon Ground

Chicago, IL, United States

In order to reduce waste  at Uncommon Ground, they use around 90% plant based to-go materials. This allows these products to be composted and avoid adding to landfills. Outside of to-go materials, they also compost as much food waste as possible. They also have several areas for employees to access recycling bins, and even have rain barrels that collect excess rain water to water their rooftop farm. Solar panels help supply their energy needs, and power their electric car charging station. Reduce, Reuse, Recycle is what they are all about!
