Lunch & Learn Guidelines

At Placework we are committed to reducing our impact on the environment in every way possible.  We aren’t perfect but as a Certified B Corporation we strive to be leaders in best holistic business practices.

We are grateful to product reps who nourish us with food as well as knowledge, and appreciate their support in our low impact efforts by observing our policies for all food delivery for lunch and learn presentations.

Our Climate Action Plan and animal welfare policy support eating a plant-based diet. Please make sure that at least 50% of the food offered is vegetarian — vegan offerings are appreciated, but not necessary.

Placework strives to be a zero-waste office. When ordering, please ask for:

  • NO plastic utensils
  • NO straws
  • NO extra cups or plates
  • NO tiny condiments such as creamers, sugar packets, ketchup, salt & pepper, etc.

The following is a list of local restaurants that provide compostable wares and offer great vegetarian options:

Thank you!
