Morris Arboretum is working to have its Compton Café certified as a Green Restaurant® by the Green Restaurant Association. They are working on accumulating points in seven categories such as water efficiency, waste reduction and recycling, and sustainable food. Additionally, the Arboretum must have a full-scale recycling program and be free of polystyrene foam  (which they currently are), and commit to educating Arboretum visitors on environmental sustainability.
