Main Event Caterers buys wind power to cover all of its electricity needs. The company's commitment revolves around changing the way it conducts its daily operations. Main Event Caterers recycles all glass, plastic, office paper, and cardboard. They have eliminated all disposables and replaced them with palm plates, balsa utensils, and corn by-product cups - all compostable and fully biodegradable. Main Event is now working on a geothermal heat reclamation project for its kitchen, warehouse, and offices. "Although daunting at first, making a change to our business behavior is relatively simple if you take it one step at a time," said Joel Thevoz, Owner. According to Thevoz, "the benefits of this behavior modification are numerous and include increased media attention, numerous awards from Arlington County government, enhanced client perception along with higher sales, plus we get to feel good about the part we are playing in improving our world."
