Once you have been to paradise and seen blankets of plastic garbage on the beach, it’s impossible to forget it. We are committed to running a fast-casual chain restaurant that rethinks what’s normal in food service.
Very Limited Plastic Waste
We don’t use plastic when it isn’t 100% necessary. The packaging, napkins, and cups are made from recycled paper materials, and they’re recyclable. We are even reluctant to serve utensils as any item that isn’t totally necessary will amount to a huge waste later.
By preparing our recipes in one central kitchen, Puzo Bar has greater control over food waste. Added bonus: the electricity and water usage are significantly lower.
No Drinks in Plastic Bottles or Cans
Soft drinks are convenient, but not environmentally-aware options. Thankfully, the Amsterdam-based company KRNWTR offers a smart solution.
KRNWTR installs a water-purification system to the local tap water that comes out in two spouts: one for crisp, flat water and the second for bubbly, carbonated water. What’s most innovative, though, is the organic syrup line. Simply choose your flavor syrup and fill up a paper cup with filtered flat or fizzy water.
Limited Food Waste
The Rocking Chefs prepare fresh ingredients by hand, utilizing as much of an ingredient as possible. The filings are then vacuum-packed and shock frozen in small portions limiting our food waste to small quantities.
