6. Encourage restaurants to change.

  1. i guess we don’t really pimp it like everyone else does, but at the bakery we use compostable to-go stuff, we compost everything we can and recycle the rest. we get local fruit when we can, and use local sustainable flour, and much of our sugar is organic. we use local distributors as much as we can, and get our soymilk from Ota 2 blocks away. Just seems normal to me, so i’m not always saying “hey, we do this!”.

    • Lisa – That’s one of the greatest things about Portland – organic and local are often the first choice and just the way business is supposed to be run around here. Some businesses flaunt it while others, like yourself, just do what is right naturally.
