October 9th at DC Reynolds
Fat Worm Compost as guest

10-Minute Spotlight:
Fat Worm Compost
"...conceived in the minds of Adrienne and Paul Kmiotek in early April 2010. It was clear that there was a need for a service that wasn't readily available here in the DC metro area. On Earth Day 2010, the business was registered and fun began. Since then it has been growing and growing, with more and more residents, offices, schools and restaurants participating. They currently average a collection of about 4 tons of organic material per

week! How it works is simple; Fat Worm provides its customers with the appropriate sized containers which are used to deposit food scraps and any type of compostable material, including things like paper products, cardboard and compostable utensils. The containers are emptied each week, however many days necessary, just like regular trash and recycling. The difference is that the compostable material is taken to a compost facility and made into rich soil which can be used to grow more compostables."

Green Drinks DC is excited to host this month’s event at DC Reynolds!

DC Reynolds opened its doors to the Petworth neighborhood in May 2012. Almost the entire restaurant is salvaged from other restaurants that closed or were using newer equipment. From the bar, to the kitchen equipment, bar stools, chairs, tables all are reclaimed from other projects. This summer, they started a rooftop garden to grow produce for use in their kitchen and used the condensation from their refrigeration as the watering mechanism for the plants. Next year they hope to further expand the garden. Their menu has a variety of tasty vegetarian options

DC Reynolds offers buy one, get one free drinks from 5:00-9:00 pm
Their drink menu includes an extensive selection of local micro-brews!!

GreenDrinksDC-Supported Dine-in

GreenDrinksDC will be partnering with Live Green for the month of January since they have some stellar sustainable events planned that we'd love the GreenDrinks community to support.

On Monday, January 9th, eating at Busboys & Poets gets even greener. Come for drinks, d...inner, appetizers, or dessert on Monday night and 10% of your earth-conscious meal will support Live Green's efforts to grow the green economy.

A nontraditional Green Drinks event, we will not be featuring a speaker on Monday evening. Feel free to mingle at the bar or bring friends for dinner. No cover charge. No membership needed.

About Busboys & Poets:
Not only is the food delicious at Busboys & Poets, but they are already a leader when it comes to environmental initiatives. They're on Clean Currents wind power, recycle their leftover oils for biofuel, use eco-friendly products wherever possible, exclusively serve organic, grass-fed beef and organic, fair trade hot drinks, and only clean with non-toxic products that aren't tested on animals. And we can't forget their support of an eco-friendly diet through a menu with plenty of delicious vegan and vegetarian options.

10-MINUTE SPOTLIGHT:
Bread for the City is one of DC's longest-serving front-line organizations providing comprehensive assistance to low-income residents. In the past few years, Bread for the City also become one of our greenest local institutions. In the wake of the recent Bag Tax, their reusable bag campaign distributed more than 50,000 bags to underprivileged communities. Their popular Glean for the City initiative has rescued hundreds of tons of surplus produce from area farms and farmers markets. And their new green rooftop garden initiatives are a shining example of DC's sustainable design and urban agriculture movements.

LOCAL 16:
A true neighborhood establishment, Local 16 takes being local seriously. Beginning In 2005, Local 16 took its commitment one-step further by investing in a 160-acre biodynamic all-heirloom farm Virginia farm. In exchange, Whipple Farm is a restaurant partner, supplying local biodynamically-grown heirloom produce that is used daily at Local 16. Local 16 even uses wood from the farm to fire their pizza oven and returns the ashes to help fertilize the soil. They also run on wind power, offer their space to community groups, and help green their neighborhood by planting gardens along New Hampshire Avenue.
