    Default Green Restaurants

    I was wondering if you have a green restaurant which is better? To use eco-friendly paper plates and metal or no utensils or standard lead free green plates, glasses & utensils for the diners?

    I would think if one did the latter it would waste water and put more chemiclas into the environment (are there board of health approved "natural" dishwasher sanitizing agents?) and if paper plates were used might they be put into a compost pile if the food taht was on them was purely organic? If a vegetarian restaurant then might all uneaten scraps be composted?

    Thanks,

    Donald

    I think they should require restaurants to use the "Green Bin". The restaurants around me have bins for card board, compostables and trash.

    Recycled products help to minimize the usage of virgin materials. We all should buy products that can be recycled. So, guys lets conserve energy and go green!


    Here, at this site, right now, is enough hackers,industrial/corporate spies, spammers, and trolls to recycle into alphabet soup or cereal!!!!!
    LialiaGok, PotEffomyBiot, Rawlwradway, SheeliDem, shenaemtnh, shenalzkig, speatlyAppalm, Speegeuseni, upseniUnces, Woormassimi.
    Unreal, I banned them and they are still called members???
    This site is nothing but a waste, with only a very few real environmentalists even here. So much good info, wasted..............

    I do agree that restaurants should have the proper recycling bins. I can't see them serving food on paper plates? Not nice restaurants anyway. I do agree that they should use real plates, etc. and then wash them.

    I think it's a good idea for restaurants nowadays to use green equipments inorder to save energy. I've seen green commercial refrigerators, dishwashers and coolers for sale in the market. These equipments are designed to go green.

    I don't know just how green this is but down here in Texas there are some restaurants that slow cook thier meats, like brisket, and serve it to you on butchers paper. I like it like that cause I get to eat with my fingers and it brings out the cave man in me and my gal just loves it when I get like that.

    I would like to see a true Earthship restaurant. Solar ovens for cooking, solar heat and electricity to LED and CF lights, water recycling system, and a section just for growing vegetables. Rainwater catchment and low flush toilets to the black water system. Use of locally made products from meat and vegetables to earthenware for "glasses" and plates. A wind generator for heavy electric grill loads and solar hot water. Only open on sunny days (or use of super high efficiency cookers)! Promoting healthy low meat , high anti-oxidant meals. Large red worm composters for scraps. Cloth napkins to be washed in a Staber solar washing machine. Dishes washed in a similar low water/power use high efficiency solar dish washer. Grey water to garden unit. No paper or plastic use, and minimal aluminum can and glass bottle use, for recycling or re-use. The tilted glass windows would have insulated automatic rolling shutters, the gardens automatic solar sensing drip irrigation. Only local non-immigrants hired for staff.

    I would like to see a true greenforum instead of this garbage;
    Now there are 167 "guests" and 10 spammer/hackers: ArbichFicromb, lemlnmxhy, MarkusMat, nikeiuhjyn,
    pofakebc, reagmatuerbup, shenalzkig, Sitlafthoff, xuavtbhyjx, zemwqqpej.
    Computer generated names mostly, a bunch of criminal phonies.
    How about the fact only 40 are reading threads???? What are the other 137 asswipes doing????
    Illegal activities, hiding from the rest, but approved by the website owner????
    What the HELL is going on, Cass?? This place is so corrupted it stinks with Russian and
    other criminal hackers, industrial/corporate spies, smugglers, spammers, and trolls. The scum of the Earth!
    How about you 40 who are reading threads? Join, speak out against the corporate/corrupt gov't/media circus!!
    Speak out to lower emissions and population!

    One problem with green businesses is that people have to travel to them, producing CO2 the whole way there and back. This goes on the business' pollution output. Unless people walked, rode a bike, or used an electric car to get there.

    One very simple concept that should be considered is the use of local produce.

    If you live on the East Coast, then the produce on your plate shouldn't come from California.

    People would have to walk, ride a bicycle or efficient motorcycle, hybrid or electric, or bio-diesel vehicle to be served, and a brief question on one or none with kids, too. No serving anyone with more than one child, because they are not helping or actually making it all worse.
    Other Earthships nearby would grow year around vegetables, grains, aquaponic catfish and trout, legumes, grains, some fruits, rabbits and chickens. Other locally grown foods.
