Tips for Eco-Friendly and Sustainable Food Trucks

2022 Ford Stripped Chassis on a Food Truck

As food and beverage trucks grow in popularity thanks to their accessibility, versatility, quality, and aesthetics, you may wonder if there is such a thing as sustainable food trucks. Typically, food trucks have had a reputation for hurting the environment. Fortunately for you, our team at William Lehman Van, Truck, and Bus Sales will break down some ways to offset and avoid some of the most common pitfalls. Read our tips on sustainable food trucks below, and then drop by for a visit if you would like to browse our used vehicle inventory.

Use Compostable Packaging

Because food trucks are mobile eateries that serve hundreds of Ft Lauderdale customers, food trucks primarily use disposable tableware. Using compostable packaging and biodegradable products is a way to invest in a cleaner future, as these alternatives take less time to break down into the environment. Compostable packaging options include to-go boxes, clamshells, straws, bags, utensils, napkins, and more.

Consider Alternative Power Sources

Ensure your kitchen is Energy Star-approved to reduce your energy consumption. Although this is a costly investment, it will pay off in the long run as your utility bills decrease. Be sure to ask us about alternative energy sources such as solar power. You’d be surprised at how accessible solar power is for outdoor food truck operators.

Consider Other Fueling Options

Food trucks that run on gas are inefficient regarding mpg ratings, so consider fueling your vehicle with biodiesel. Talk with our staff if you have questions about fuel alternatives that will work for your vehicle.

Keep Your Vehicle Up-To-Date

Servicing your truck will reduce the emissions released into the atmosphere and save you money. Watching your “Service Engine” light and occasionally visiting our service center will ensure you don’t burn more fuel than necessary and keep your operation’s centerpiece running smoothly. If you need to inspect your food truck for issues, schedule service with us today.
