The group that manages catering at the Albuquerque BioPark along with the cafes at the zoo and aquarium is implemented a number of green initiatives to limit the use of plastics.

That includes replacing straws with a compostable and recyclable version. All the cups, lids and disposable ware are also compostable.

The company that manages the gift shops no longer uses plastic bags.

The BioPark also has a recycling program for plastic bottles and small plastic waste, aluminum cans, cardboard and paper in conjunction with city's solid waste department.
