Ever stop to wonder just how much glass and can waste one restaurant produces and do they recycle all that waste? Unfortunately most places do not, which I really don't understand. It's simply a matter of separating things as they are used.
Above is what we accumulate in recycling during a slow week, and we are just one small wine bar. Imagine what a large, chain restaurant puts in the landfill. Going green is about more than buying a few local ingredients, its about making choices across the board that are better for our environment, from light bulbs to chemicals and recycling.
