A new restaurant called Horns recently opened in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. The focus of the restaurant is on fresh, local and sustainable food, as well as overall sustainable operations.
In addition to serving foods made with fresh ingredients from farms 75 to 100 miles away, and listing those farms in the restaurant so diners know where their food is coming from, Horns also has eco-friendly practices in place that help create a more sustainable environment. The fryer oil is donated for biodiesel instead of getting thrown out. The food waste is composted and sent to a local farm. Instead of using plastic cutlery and takeout containers, Horns food is sent out with SpudWare, a biomaterial made from potatoes. And in place of plastic bottles is recyclable glass.
In addition, there is also chalkboard on the wall that displays the definitions of such sustainable terms as "compost," "biofuel," "organic foods," "grass-fed" and "sustainable engineering." By serving sustainable food, using sustainable materials and defining sustainable terms, Horns is doing its part to raise environmental awareness and help feed its community better food.
