planet.jpgCaterersearch received a big plug in an article on eco-friendly restaurants in last Saturday’s Times. The article promoted our Green Zone and quoted our recent exclusive research into the restaurant sector’s efforts to go green:

The hospitality bible Caterer & Hotelkeeper magazine ran a series of green-focused issues a few months ago in an effort to spur the industry on, and it publishes a Green Zone on its website (www.caterersearch.com) to encourage more eco-friendly practices.
And British restaurants are becoming greener: an online Caterer & Hotelkeeper survey, published last summer, showed that a third of its 500 industry respondents had already set formal sustainability targets. Nearly 85 per cent have recycling measures in place and just under half are sourcing sustainable or ethical products.

The article focuses on Water House, the new eco-restaurant in London from the people that brought us Acorn House. For an in-depth look at how its owners fitted out the kitchen at Water House with a view to safeguarding the planet, check out the latest article in our My New Kitchen series.
