  • Hey Boston! Let’s stand in solidarity with people-of-color and women-owned business, and eat some delicious food while we’re at it! Make a pledge to dine at Flames, Legal Seafood, and/or Bon Me if they start composting with CERO, and put your money where your mouth is. Who’s hungry?

    Massachusetts established a food waste ban in 2014, mandating businesses that are producing 1 ton or more of food waste per week to divert food waste from rotting in landfills to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

    CERO Cooperative partners with businesses to divert and compost their food waste, boost their green cred and potentially save money too. CERO currently works with customers you know including Wegman's, b.good, Boston Public Market, and Northeastern University.

    To continue providing green jobs and supporting women-owned, people-of-color-owned, and community-owned businesses, we support Flames, Bon Me, and Legal Seafoods to partner with CERO Coop.

    You pledge to buy a gift card from a select restaurant if a Boston-area food business, Bon Me, Flames or Legal Seafoods, commits to composting with CERO Cooperative. Each business hears directly from paying customers about what they value: environment, community, and sustainability.
