Great news from our friends in Harrisburg about eating establishments who are going or have gone green!
Nonna’s Deli Sioso, 263 Reily Street, Harrisburg has installed solar panels on their roof. The solar panels provide 75 percent of the deli’s electricity and make hot water. They use local produce whenever possible. Nonna’s supports the arts by being a 3rd in the Burg participant!
Isaac’s Restaurant & Deli, a chain with locations across Pennsylvania, is building their new locations with recycled materials, using solar tubes for lighting and using more energy efficient HVAC systems.
Neato Burrito, metro Harrisburg locations, is ditching the Styrofoam cups in favor of plant-based cups that are fully compostable. The next improvement will be green utensils.
Mangia Qui, 272 North Street, Harrisburg uses non-toxic paint, green cleaning products and LED light bulbs. They use only hydroponically grown greens and produce. They buy antibiotic and hormone-free chicken and grass-fed beef. Containers are 100 percent biodegradable and the dishwashers are low energy. Solar panels are planned for the roof and the conversion of their heaters to an on-demand hot water system. Mangia Qui supports the arts by being a 3rd in the Burg participant!
If you are ecologically responsible and would like to support businesses who walk to the talk, we encourage you to consider visting these establishments. If you support the Harrisburg Arts Revitalization, two of these restaurants are also working toward that goal by participating in 3rd in the Burg.
