A HEALTHY WORKING ENVIRONMENT
“Whether you’re here to help the environment …”
Choosing an organic, plant-based diet goes beyond simply avoiding unnecessary toxins and animal byproducts. As a larger section of the world population consciously chooses health over convenience, the residual effects on the environment continue to be exponentially experienced.
Green Bar & Kitchen insists on patronizing locally-sourced farms and vendors whenever possible; both to ensure the freshest products possible while also eliminating the petroleum and toxins associated with cross-country product delivery. Simply put: supporting local business eliminates a heavy carbon footprint while simultaneously growing local economy and ensuring the integrity of the product, especially when organic.
Both GBK eatery locations use recycled PET (polyethylene terephthalate) to-go packaging, biodegradable plastic cups, minimal paper-based literature and one-hundred percent non-GMO certified organic products. Additionally, nearly all of the products are gluten-free, eco-kosher certified and locally sourced.
The state of Florida remains amongst the nation’s leaders emphasizing an eco-friendly lifestyle: Florida Atlantic University, Florida State University and the University of South Florida are all in the top-fifty affordable, eco-friendly universities across the United States.
Meanwhile, a half-decade’s worth of trends point towards an environmentally conscious, organic plant-powered diet for all age groups across the state, the country and the world.
The millions of people in America who buy organic food in the United States has not declined annually in nearly five years:
Focusing on eco-friendly businesses and the environment continues to pay dividends when the local and national economy become involved:
Considering U.S. citizens throw away 250,000,000 plastic bottles every hour, and considering Americans generate 21.5 million tons of food waste annually, the fact becomes clear: there is no time to waste remaining stuck in archaic dietary and recycling habits. The health of every individual – and future generations of individuals – remains a commonwealth responsibility. When the average U.S. citizen individually generates over four pounds of trash every day – 1.5 tons of solid waste per year – education on eco-friendly products and businesses becomes paramount.
Green Bar & Kitchen remains committed to the promotion of health and well-being of every individual member of the community – locally and globally. By insisting on locally-sourced products, eliminating unnecessary paper products whenever possible, using recyclable packaging and utensils and focusing on the integrity involved in the products sold, GBK is hoping to continue setting the tone for South Florida businesses and restaurants.
“Whatever the reason; we’re glad you are here.”
