Restaurant Week gets a ‘Green Spotlight’ - Farmers Fishers Bakers

See also

Restaurant Week should also have a ‘Green Spotlight’ for the restaurants who are making an impact on the environment. For example, Farmers Fishers Bakers (www.FarmersFishersBakers.com) is in the process to earn its Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Silver Certification through the United States Green Building Council (www.USGBC.gov).

Completely separate from the LEED process, they also operate as a Green Restaurant through the Green Restaurant Association (GRA) www.dinegreen.com. The Farmers Fishers Bakers restaurant has interior fixtures and furnishings that are at least 50% post-consumer recycled content which has been recycled or reclaimed. For example, the wood on the wall in the larger area of the restaurant is reclaimed barn wood; however, on the opposite side of the bar is made with rubber tire threads. Flooring and fabrics were also taken in consideration for sustainable design.

Their cost effective ways consist of using only in-house filtered water systems, separating waste for recycling, composting and redistributing the compost to regional farms on a daily basis. These practices reduces and some cases eliminates the need for materials (i.e. water bottles), transportation, carbon emissions, and expensive water.

In conclusion, with this being restaurant week, consider a restaurant that impacts the environment.
