Serving Spectacular Pizza while taking Care of Mother Earth
We want DVine Pie to be as environmentally clean as possible. Every product we buy, and every decision we make, takes into consideration our environmental impact.
Following are examples of how we’re being as environmentally friendly as we can. We hope that others will follow suit, and do whatever they can do to care for our Mother Earth.
DVine Box Take Out / Delivery Tray
DVine Pie is proud to be the first restaurant in the United States to send our pizza’s home in a pizza tray made from 75% recycled aluminum. Unlike yucky old school cardboard pizza boxes (which cannot be recycled), the DVine Box is:
Reusable /Reheatable: Because of its durability, the DVine Box can be used over and over again, at home to store and reheat pizza, or by us at DVine Pie…so far we’re getting over 5 use cycles out of each box.
Returnable: We charge a $3 deposit for a DVine Box. When you’re done with it, just return it and you’ll get $3 cash back or a $5 store coupon
Recyclable: Aluminum is the most recycled material on the planet, with the current world aluminum supply consisting of 75% recycled aluminum.
Better For Your Pizza: The DVine Box is vented, which allows the steam to escape. Your pizza arrives home hot with a crispy crust.
Sourcing locally, Disposing Minimally.
We buy “locally” from breweries, distilleries, wineries and food purveyors whenever possible
All of the beer, and most of the wine we pour comes to us in kegs. When the kegs are spent, we return them to be refilled.
We estimate this results in our generating 80% less can/glass waste than a typical restaurant / bar our size.
“To Go” Containers That Go Away
We use only 100% compostable restaurant supplies from Good Start Packaging, including:
paper straws, provided on request
100% compostable “to-go” containers made from corn starch and plant-based materials. No petroleum based products, ever.
paper napkins made from 100% recycled post-consumer waste paper
bathroom tissue made from 100% recycled post-consumer waste paper
Since being “green” certified in 2012, W.H. Linen is still the only linen supplier endorsed by the Green Restaurant Association. DVine Pie is proud to work exclusively with WH Linen Rental for restaurant linen requirements.

Half the sugar & half the calories
Sweetened with only raw, organic cane sugar
Hand-crushed herbs & spices

DVine Pie is proud to serve More Good sodas as part of our commitment to helping making the world a better place, and serving healthy alternatives sourced from local companies to our guests.
