Earth Day - What do you think our next step should be?
On Tuesday, April 22nd, 2008 - come celebrate Earth Day at tidbit!
Earth Day was conceived by Senator Gaylord Nelson after a trip he took to Santa Barbara right after that horrific oil spill off our coast in 1969. He was so outraged by what he saw that he went back to Washington and passed a bill designating April 22 as a national day to celebrate the earth.
It has been one month since tidbit has become green certified. Joining the Green Restaurant Association is motivating even more in completing additional green steps every year and we are already planning to take some new steps soon. Here is also a complete list of all the steps that we have taken since we opened our restaurant:
o we are free of polystyrene foam
o we use 100% biodegradable to-go-boxes
o we use a certified green company for our linens
o we prefer locally grown and sustainable food
o we use biodegradable detergents and sanitizers
o we use recycled paper for our menus
o we use 80% post-consumer recycled butcher paper
o we compost our food waste
o we recycle our garbage
o we use water saving aerators for our facets
Your opinion is very important to us. What do you think our next step should be?
