“Andy is like a godsend; our whole team gets along with him. It’s like gold to have him dove tail immediately with our team. We focus our time on the buildup to an event, so it’s great to have someone dedicated to the downslope of the event. Having BARC helping at the end of the event brings a lot of peace of mind to us as caterers.”
“Andy has an infectious personality and every member of team is passionate about their work. It is rare to see someone so dedicated to their ethos and culture. He cares so genuinely about things that most people turn a head to. The venues we work in are always left in better condition than we found them because BARC is involved. They are wonderful stewards of customer service”
“BARC is a great partner for a catering team. The catering team gets to focus on serving amazing food and taking care of guests. BARC handles the clean-up.”
“I cannot emphasize enough how smoothly the waste management went with BARC. Every wedding I’ve done that didn’t have BARC, no one knew whose responsibility hauling and sorting the waste was. Having BARC at your wedding is a no-brainer.”
“Great company with a great cause.The team is amazing and I’m proud to be working for BARC!”
“Great people, doing great things while supporting other great organizations. They did a great job ensuring the last large-scale event I was at was net-zero. Highly recommend.”

“BARC is awesome!!! Thanks for helping keep our Traverse City clean and beautiful!!!”
Our first featured nonprofit of 2021 is SEEDS!
They are devoted to finding “local solutions to global issues at the intersection of ecology, education, and design”.
They offer after school programs for students, offer work through EcoCorps in historic preservation, trail building, habitat restoration, and teach the community how to reduce their carbon footprint.
They also support BARC by using our composting and recycling services. We have worked closely with SEEDS through think tanks and partnerships, and we are excited to see what opportunities 2021 gives us to work together.
Check out their website for more info on what services they offer, or to make a donation to this incredible organization.
