It’s Easy Being Red, White and Green
The owners and employees of Palermo Villa, Inc. take great care to preserve the environment for future generations through pervasive efforts to reduce, reuse and recycle as part of our frozen Pizza manufacturing process, including:
Palermo’s helps reduce greenhouse gas emissions by utilizing freight carriers that are certified for their fuel-efficient practices and by choosing intermodal transportation for our shipping needs whenever feasible.
Our office lighting features occupancy sensors and our manufacturing plant uses energy-efficient LED lighting.
More than 900 tons of food waste is repurposed as feed for livestock annually.
The more than 15 million pounds of cardboard that Palermo’s uses annually for master boxes and individual Pizza boxes is made from recycled pulp.
Palermo’s recycles more than 2,000 tons of cardboard and plastic annually, along with thousands of plastic drums. We also donate dozens of plastic barrels to city projects every year for use as rain barrels.
Palermo Villa’s no-water lawn and planting are environmentally friendly.
Our employee “stew crew” leaves a green footprint with weekly outings to maintain and beautify the area around our facility and the nearby Hank Aaron State Trail.
Palermo’s has partnered with our Menomonee Valley neighbors to support efforts to maintain an environmentally conscious city:
Palermo’s Pizzaiolos are committed to being responsible citizens of Mother Earth, as well as good neighbors and friends to those who work and play in Milwaukee’s Menomonee Valley.
