Chick-Fil-A has a
sustainable clothing initiative
related to their team uniforms.
They partnered with a brand that
creates fabric from plastic bottles
for the initiative, which provides clothing to over
team members in the US.
Each uniform shirt contains
19 plastic bottles
and is designed to be durable and damage resistant.
The initiative has recycled over
5.3 million bottles
Chick-Fil-A implements a design and construction process that is
aimed at sustainability
, and specifically to reduce construction waste.
They use an industrialized approach, where they are "
of the building away from the site to save time and improve quality and consistency".
They also follow
Lean Construction principles
and comply with LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design).
The program has created a
50 percent reduction
in construction waste related to new restaurants.
Chick-Fil-A has also been addressing food waste issues via a
partnership with Let Us Compost.
In an effort to address the high volume of food waste from their restaurants, Chick-Fil-A began
a small pilot program
to divert food waste from landfills.
Seeing success, they've expanded the pilot program, and so far have diverted approximately
of food waste from landfills to be composted.
