Earth Day April 22, 2016 Who you are, is …What you leavebehind. Earth Day is everyday at Kohala Burger& Taco. Much of our concept development takes into account the Aina’s limitedlandfill space. We reduce, recycle and reuse.
Our efforts were rewarded as Kohala Burger & Tacowas named a State Finalist in The Nature Conservatory’s “People’s Choice 2013Nature’s Plate Award” and the 2012 recipient of Recycle’s Hawaii’s “Keeping ItGreen Hawaii” award.
In 2015 we extended the greening of our Kawaihae diner even further byreplacing the No. 2 plastic take out containers with even more bio-friendly containersproduced by World Centric from plant waste materials. We also eliminated the No.2 plastic cups that were used for serving water. · We have a strict “No Styrofoam”Policy.· All of our used cooking oil isrecycled and turned into bio-fuel. · All beverage cans and bottles used atKBAT are recycled. · Our packaging materialscome from EcoCraft and that use no dyes. Most cutlery, cups and lids are madefrom plant starches. These plant based products reduce pollution and waste, require lessenergy and water to produce, come from renewable resources, are created fromwaste products, save biodiversity and habitats and the list goes on.
At Kohala Burger & Taco, we’re always looking for ways to helpthe environment not only on Earth Day, but every day. For our business this isnot only smart, it’s easy. You too canmake a difference, at home, work or play. Recycle something today! Treat the earth kindly, there is onlyone.
