This summer I was traveling through New Orleans and stopped into this little cafe. It’s the red building in this photo.
I always seek out places that have environmentally friendly practices but it’s not always easy. From the outside I didn’t expect them to be doing anything particularly green but after talking to the owner for a bit I was amazed to learn that they actually don’t even have a garbage can. In order for a business to have no garbage can a lot of environmentally friendly practices have got to be going on. They have to be doing something really different from most places in the USA. Their story inspired me and is one that more people should know about so I asked the owner to write a guest blog to share his experience with working toward going zero waste. I hope this will help and inspire more restaurants, cafes and businesses in general to reduce their trash and maybe even one day have no trash can! Here’s Tommy’s guest blog!
