Earth Day comes only once a year, April 22nd, but our planet needs us 24/7/365. Out of a desire to provide quality food that is healthy for both the consumer, and the environment, Buzz's Hawaiian Grill, LLC strives in each decision it makes to operate in a means in the best interest of you, me, and mother earth.
Buzz's Hawaiian Grill does everything we can to purchase food, supplies, and consumables which support the missions of the organizations listed below. We invest in low energy sources such as Ameren UE Pure Power, we use compostable materials such as plates, napkins and utensils made from cornstarch and sugarcane and we recycle everything that is recyclable which crosses through our organization. This includes composting our vegetable scraps, and seeing that leftover food reaches those in need.
We seek organic ingredients, antibiotic free fish and poultry, Non-GMO products and use types of Ahi which are not on the watch list for being over fished.
That's living Aloha!
