Trash-Free Restaurant? It CAN Be Done!
Owner/chef Justin Vrany of Lakeview’s Sandwich Me In Restaurant recycles 99.999 percent of the restaurant’s waste. What he couldn’t recycle, reuse or compost, he has kept in an eight gallon bag on the premises. Well, he did this until recently, when a local artist picked up the waste to create a sculpture, making him totally trash-free.
Justin’s quick service eatery’s entire waste output is equivalent to what a restaurant of similar volume produces in just an hour. In addition, Justin uses locally-sourced meats and fresh produce. How does he do this? Why does he do this? You’ll have to watch this short video to learn the answer to those questions!
