Welfare Series Book No. 7: Curbing Waste

Sustainability is at the heart of everything we do here at Altos. This includes the community-based projects that we support, the practices that we promote, and perhaps most importantly, sustaining the people who make us who we are.
That is why our WE CARE programs focus on our bartender community. We’ve got your back, and we are always looking for ways to be there for you.

Then, get inspired by industry leaders in the field of food waste and emissions. Change starts at home, with little steps that have an impact.
