27 Appetizing Eco-Eateries

From Eco Fast Food Chains to In-Store Farm Factories

— August 12, 2011 — Eco
Those with an appreciation of sustainable living are going to be salivating at the thought of these fabulous eco-eateries. Not only are these amazing restaurants sustainable, but they are also architecturally superior to many existing eateries that have forsaken taking on green initiatives.

If you enjoy feasting your eyes on super-cool interiors of eco-eateries, the rolling bamboo interiors and wooden wave diners are sure to impress. For a one-of-a-kind dining experience, these birds nest restaurants and mountain top eco huts are definite stand outs! I hope to see more eco-eateries like these that prove to be as tasty as they are green!

Implications - Consumers that are going green continue to seek out an environmental option for every aspect of their lives. Companies looking to position themselves with consumer's current and future demands should continuously push the boundaries of creating aesthetically pleasing, yet environmentally friendly products and services.
