Boston Green Drinks - September 2018 Happy Hour | Warehouse Bar & Grille | Tuesday, 25. September 2018

For September's Happy Hour, we will be joined by Peak Organic Brewing Company! A representative will join us, with swag in-hand (Pint glasses, etc), to discuss their beers and their mission, which aligns nicely with Green Drinks! 
 
Join the conversation with sustainability professionals and hobbyists.  Enjoy a drink and build your connection with our green community! Boston Green Drinks builds a community of sustainably-minded Bostonians, provides a forum for exchange of sustainability career resources, and serves as a central point of information about emerging green issues.  We support the exchange of ideas and resources about sustainable energy, environment, food, health, education.
 
Why Warehouse?They are currently in the process of updating their food & beverage menu, as well as their business practices, to put a focus on more sustainable and ethical items! Green Drinks celebrates their efforts to become a Certified Green Restaurant®, and thus let's raise a glass they own, to their success! 
What are they trying?
1.  Recycling food waste in partnership with Agri Cycle Clean Energy.  They essentially turn the food waste & packaging scraps into energy - 

2.  Adding all sorts of vegan options, including the Impossible Burger  As Cliff, their owner, puts it: The movement towards a plant-based diet is here and we're trying to meet the demands of our customers.  There's no denying the detrimental impact that animal agriculture has on the environment so we're attempting to shift our menu to food that is more sustainable.

3.  Growing their own herbs in house, cutting down on transportation & packaging costs of having them delivered.  Basil, cilantro and oregano are their first three and the hope is to start to grow their own salad greens as well.

4.  Continuing best efforts to minimize utility consumption by using low flow toilets, LED light bulbs and energy star rated cooking & refrigeration equipment.  They were lucky enough to build our space brand new so took advantage of some energy efficient programs the state offers restaurants.

5.  In partnership with our trash provider - Used cardboard boxes are recycled.

6.  In partnership with our beer distributors - Glass bottles & alumni cans are recycled.

7.  They're exploring ways to eliminate use of plastic straws.
