Our sustainable initiatives
Without good food, bartaco simply wouldn’t be the upscale street food restaurant it is today. Everything from our tacos, salsas, to churros—are all made from scratch daily using only the freshest ingredients. We recognize that the health of our planet plays a significant role in helping our suppliers grow the foods we use to create the delicious dishes and cocktails our guests know and love. We just recently started our sustainability journey and are proud to be taking it a step further and joining forces with Green Places to more effectively reduce our carbon footprint. We are excited to collaborate with Green Places and together we are committed to proactively: ● measuring our footprint ● offsetting our impact ● learning more and implementing new practices to be more green

Sustainable To Go
bartaco is working to reduce its footprint by adopting more sustainable takeout containers, bags and utensils in an effort to reduce it's waste
we are making an effort to source as much reclaimed wood as we can for our decor, frames, and host stand materials
We believe the first step in sustainability is to get an accurate measurement of your footprint. Everything begins with knowing "where you are," and armed with that information businesses are able to make carbon smart decisions
Each year, the world emits an estimated 36.44 billion metric tons of carbon. Our clients want to leave the world better than they found it, which is why these companies are doing their part by offsetting their carbon emissions annually. They understand that in order to combat climate change it will take a continued commitment to sustainability.
