Restaurants introduce consumers to a waste-free lifestyle with upscale experiences

Dining establishments that follow a zero-waste ethos are putting just as much effort into providing a memorable experience as they are in creating re-purposed menu items. This approach not only transforms people's opinions about waste; it also encourages more mainstream attention to the cause.
