Upscaling Waste

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

Implications - As concerns about food scarcity rise, more and more consumers are becoming conscious of waste. 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.
