Real Recycling

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.

Nice blog on recycling. Being a wine lover, I enjoyed going through your blog. Keep it up the good work. beth www.colonialgifts.co.uk

Keep up the good work. More businesses should follow your example and be creative in reducing waste and reusing items.

The owner of Visual Treats (Caroline Street) takes pressed board (cereal boxes etc.) and stamps her business card information on it because she said the city won't recycle pressed board.

I am THRILLED to hear Kybecca recycles. That is a pet peeve of mine, watching innumerable glass bottles go into the trash. Thank you very much for "doing the right thing", even when it is not the easy thing.
