PEOPLE: Did you know the average age of a homeless person in Arizona is nine years of age?! As a local Arizona business, The U.S. Egg has decided to affiliate with many different homeless shelters in the sate of Arizona. Annual Pajama Drives help to raise money for shelters as well as the pajamas themselves. So far, they have succeeded with donating over ten thousand dollars to local homeless shelters and have raised over 1,500 pairs of pajamas. The U.S. Egg doesn’t bother to spend money on advertisement; instead they sponsor local sporting leagues while attempting to enrich the community as a whole.

PLANET: In the US, restaurants are the top electricity consumer among retail businesses, accounting for 33%. Because of this The U.S. Egg decided to be “carbon neutral” at all locations!!! What is “carbon neutral”? Their “sustainability” plan encompasses three major business areas, the purchase of their products, the use of the products/facilities and the control of its output. Through the philosophy of reducing, reusing and recycling, The U.S. Egg is extremely committed to taking steps towards its part of a sustainable future. The U.S. Egg has spent the last few years shifting to more environmentally sound practices without compromising their business plan or amazing cuisine. Here are some key collective changes that have helped the business become more sustainable.
How We Make A Difference – Practices Vary From Location to Location
Sustainability changes at the U.S. Egg have spanned a wide range of areas from switching to energy saving incandescent light bulbs to acquiring meats from a local food source. Also, they have started a recycling program within the shopping center at the Tempe location. The plan encompasses cardboard, paper, plastic and glass. Even down to the notepads they use come from in house recycled paper! Their deep fryer oil is donated to the Arizona Biofuel Company, where it is turned into an alternative fuel for vehicles.
Saving used coffee grounds and offering them to their guests to help in their gardening is just a small way they make an effort to being responsible. At all locations, smart heating and cooling is used to reduce energy costs and keep up customer comfort. They have also installed an energy efficient device to save money every month. Expanding the storage space at the restaurants resulted in saving the emission of CO2 and fuel. By expanding it has reduced the number of deliveries from sixteen down to twelve a week, or 200 truck deliveries a year. Additionally, they have contracted with EcoAid to access their “carbon footprint” (our annual CO2 emissions) for all three locations, and purchased carbon offsets to be a fully “carbon neutral” organization. What is a carbon offset?
Goals for the Future
In the future, The U.S. Egg hopes to partake in green purchasing programs of renewable and biodegradable disposable kitchenware and the most efficient kitchen appliances. They would like to switch to an alternative cup other than Styrofoam that biodegrades easier. In addition, the U.S. Egg will increase the use of eco-friendly cleaners and expand its recycling to all locations. U.S. Egg’s owner’s, managers, and staff are doing their part to contribute more sustainable methods within the restaurant industry. They hope that their commitment will show leadership for other restaurants in the future.
