Urban Plantations is proud to announce their recent involvement with Chris Puffer and Brian Malarkey’s latest restaurant: Herb and Wood!
This upscale eatery nestled in Little Italy features “Cali-Mediterranean” fare, an outdoor patio dining room, and in-house baked bread.
UP contributions include potted herbs, citrus trees, a passionfruit vine wall, and a shelf of greenery using a wooden canoe as a planter.
Starting April 1st 2016, Bill AB1826 requires businesses that generate 8+ cubic yards of waste weekly must have green recycling services. This decreases to 4 cubic yards/week on January 1st 2017, meaning that more businesses will be required compost or pay for green waste disposal.
Redirecting organic waste to a composting system will reduce the environmentally-harmful methane emissions. “Organic waste” includes food waste, landscaping green waste, and paper products.
To quote the Solana Center, “About a third of the waste we create and send to the landfills could readily be composted. In doing so, we could reduce greenhouse gas production, diminish landfill impacts, creating a wonderful soil amendment in support of our state’s agriculture, and create jobs!”
Can you spot our canoe planter at Herb and Wood? Find it in the patio seating area when you visit!
