Environmentally Friendly: 4 Ways State & Allen Gives Back

State & Allen

Not only do we care about delicious, farm fresh food, but we care about preparing it in a way that is good for our environment. That means finding local, sustainable food sources whenever possible and incorporating little changes into the way we do business that make a big impact.

 

Here are just 4 of the unique ways State & Allen seeks to give back and support a better planet:

 

1.   Compostable Takeout Containers

Do you ever think about the impact those Styrofoam takeout containers have on the environment? At State & Allen, we use specialty containers from Ecotainer that have a plastic liner derived from plants, making it perfectly biodegradable. Oh – and those plastic takeout bags? We order those from Trellisearth.com and they completely decompose with no harm to the environment.

 

2.   Bring a Mug for Free Coffee

Every little bit helps, and that’s why we offer our guests the chance to get free coffee if they’ll simply bring their own mug for Sunday brunch. It reduces the amount of dishes we must clean, in turn, reducing our water consumption.

 

3.   Recycling

Our office staff recycles anything and everything they can and also uses recycled paper. In the same way, our kitchen staff recycles all of our cooking oil (think biodiesel!).

 

4.   Water is Optional

It might sound weird, but we don’t automatically provide water at your table when you are seated. Your server will ask if you would like water, and if so, we will gladly provide it. If not, then you’ve just helped us conserve a little more water and energy.

 

These are just a few of the many ways State & Allen Kitchen + Bar gives back to help create a better planet. In fact, we’ve been named one of the top green restaurants in Dallas, Texas and we are so proud of that accomplishment!

We're Seeing Green!

State & Allen

Happy St. Patrick’s Day, Yall!

 

All this talk of wearing green, green beer, and pinching people has us seeing green!

 

And not just St. Patrick’s Day green. What about “good for the environment green?”

 

Did you know State & Allen Kitchen + Bar is one of the greenest restaurants in Dallas, Texas?!

 

In fact, State & Allen is the ONLY restaurant in Dallas to be a “Certified Green Restaurant” by the Green Restaurant Association, meaning we keep raising the bar in terms of what we can do to preserve our environment. Here are just a few ways State & Allen is pushing the envelope and providing green dining in Dallas:

 

·     Environmentally Friendly Paper Goods: No Styrofoam to-go boxes here! State & Allen uses Ecotainers, to-go boxes with plastic lining that is derived from plants, allowing the entire piece to be composted! We’ve also made the switch to plastic bags from Trellis Earth, also completely compostable, 100% biodegradable, and do not harm the environment in any way.

·     Recycling: You’d be surprised at all the things you can recycle! State & Allen recycles just about anything we can – plastic, cardboard, straws, office paper, etc. – to the tune of 17,000 lbs. of recycled products each MONTH!

·     The “Bring Your Mug” Policy: Want free coffee? Just bring in your own mug for Dallas’s best brunch at State & Allen, and you’ll receive free coffee and refills. Sometimes it’s the little things that create less waste for the environment.

·     Water is Precious: We understand that most restaurants automatically bring water to the table. At State & Allen, we don’t. Our goal is to waste less water at the restaurant and that includes foregoing the automatic glass of water. But don’t worry, if you’d like water, we will absolutely bring it to you!
