Catalyst Ranch is committed to being a green event space.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) uses a 14 point check list when considering venues, and we are proud that Catalyst Ranch meets and exceeds all applicable standards!

As members of the Chicago Green Wedding Alliance, Catalyst Ranch is committed to promoting events that are better for the environment. It’s the mission of the GWA to encourage greener weddings, commitment ceremonies, and social events by connecting conscious consumers to environmentally and socially responsible vendors.




Our recycling program starts with our vintage Americana furniture, décor and embellishments.


Our entire lighting system is made up of LED lights, the industry standard in energy efficient and eco-friendly lighting!


Instead of paper towels, we use washable cotton towels to clean up


Our location provides easy access to public transportation or shuttle services and almost all our employees either bike, walk, or take the CTA into work


We employ a paperless method of invoicing our clients




We recycle all plastic, paper, cardboard, electronics, batteries, ink cartridges, and even our one-liners! Plus, all of the paper products we use in house have already been recycled and we ask all our caterers to recycle whatever they can.


We train our staff on the what & why concerning all our green initiatives. One of our former Ranch Hands has made sustainability and green initiatives his life by starting the urban farming business Every Last Morsel -
