Sustainability Forward

Come for the Food, Stay for the Earth

When you come to The Switch, you can feel good about making an environmentally responsible choice. The Switch is proud to be the first food hall in the nation certified as a 3-Star Certified Green Restaurant™ by the Green Restaurant Association and only the second restaurant in Nebraska to earn this status. The Switch’s six kitchens, bar, and food hall staff collaborated to implement over 50 steps to meet the certification standards and are committed to continuing to lower our impact on the environment.


Nearly every single-use item you receive at The Switch – plates, bowls, napkins, and cups – is industrially compostable. These items plus your food scraps are collected at our waste stations and hauled offsite daily by our partner, Hillside Solutions. The waste is taken to Soil Dynamics, where it is turned into nutrient-dense soil. We bring some of that soil right back to The Switch to use in our landscaping and to nourish our plants.


What isn’t compostable gets recycled. Hillside Solutions also manages all of the recycling needed by our kitchens and bar including aluminum, paper, and plastic.
