Twilight Pizza Bistro

Twilight Pizza Bistro

Morgan and Don, owners of Twilight Pizza Bistro, discovered the Green Business Program while participating in Clark County's Master Composter Recycler training program. The class provides tools and knowledge about how to reduce waste and compost, and Morgan was inspired to bring the concepts she learned to her restaurant. 

After joining Clark County's Green Business program, Morgan learned that Twilight's food waste could be collected for composting instead of sent to the landfill. She estimates that by signing up for food waste service from Waste Connections, they will prevent 10,000 pounds of food waste from going to the landfill each year. 

Reduce, reuse, and recycle is at the heart of the business design. Seeing how much waste is diverted from the waste stream is a really positive motivator to continue forming and completing green goals. Some future goals include taking a closer look at the cleaning products to determine if Twilight may be able to implement local green cleaning products instead. They're also evaluating whether they could serve wine from kegs instead of bottles. 

Most of the restaurant décor is recycled/upcycled, and includes several pieces of art from the Clark County Recycled Arts Festival. Reclaimed industrial light fixtures and reclaimed barn wood were used to create the bar. Patio furniture was recently replaced and upgraded to furniture made from recycled content plastic. 

Morgan and Don said that the key to a successful green business is getting the employees in the habit/routine of handling waste in an environmentally responsible way, and also by encouraging the employees to make a habit out of these green actions. Morgan and Don are proud that their business practices are in line with their beliefs surrounding environmental sustainability.
