Sustainability

At Bamboo Sushi, we thoughtfully consider our impact on people, place, and planet.

From transparency in our sourcing practices to supporting our employees and enriching the communities we live in – our mission is to be a restaurant of purpose. In 2008, Bamboo Sushi became the world’s first certified sustainable sushi restaurant. Today, we proudly contribute 1% of our restaurants’ annual sales to environmental nonprofits who are leading the way in preserving and restoring critical fisheries, watersheds, and ecosystems.
