Our EarthCare Commitment:
A Proudly Green and Sustainable Restaurant in Washington, D.C.
From composting to fryer oil recycling, Poste is committed to preserving the restaurant's status as a responsible community partner through proven sustainable, green practices. Adhering to the guidelines outlined in Kimpton's EarthCare® program, Poste follows earth-friendly operations wherever possible, including:
- Local and sustainable ingredients: We support a top-quality network of local farmers and purveyors.
- Organic garden: From lettuce and tomatoes to kiwis and figs, our sources produce and herbs from the courtyard garden whenever the season (and weather!) permits.
- Organic and local beverages: This includes shade grown and/or fair trade coffee, biodynamic wines and organic, fresh-squeezed juices.
- In-house filtered water
- Fryer oil recycling: All cooking oil is recycled and converted into diesel fuel.
- Paper, plastic, glass and aluminum recycling
- Biodegradable products: We want to ensure that every Poste meal is as eco-friendly as possible, even when you take it home - that's why our to-go containers are made of sugarcane and all disposable utensils and packaging are made of corn-based, biodegradable materials.
- Oyster Recovery Partnership: We proudly work with this Annapolis-based non-profit by recycling shells to help re-build oyster beds back to sustainable levels.
- Wine on tap system: One of the first of its kind in D.C., our wine on tap system uses recyclable kegs and reduces bottle consumption.
- Biodynamic garden: Our pesticide-free, biodynamic garden relies on nature's best pest control: lady bugs and earth worms.
- Recycled furniture and accessories
- Cleaning supplies: What's the saying? "Toxin-free cleanliness is next to godliness."
- Energy conservation
