Tomorrow’s Front Burner column is about two local restaurants that have made an effort to be more environmentally friendly.
Fork in the Alley in South Roanoke has joined the Green Restaurant Association. They started recycling, cut out Styrofoam containers, installed air dryers in the bathroom and switched some lights to motion-sensored lights.
Hotel Roanoke is talking about composting its veggie and fruit scraps. This after they’ve already been addressing water and electrical usage and other issues for several years.
The Green Restaurant Association and the Virginia Department of Environmental Quality say they think some diners are more likely to choose a green restaurant over a non-green restaurant.
What do you say? Would that make any impact on you?
