Greenlaunches.com: The Greenhouse restaurant, a well-designed recycled place to eat

Completely green, great food and a clever initiative: The definition of a fine place to dine, the Greenhouse by Joost Bakker. This green eatery sprouted up quickly and is enjoying a load of attention lately. And when we say green, this one’s the greenest place to eat we’ve ever come across.

Everything, from the staff’s recycled T-shirts, to the flooring made from recycled conveyor belts has left us smiling silly. A pop-up restaurant that will soon be put to rest, located at The Rocks in Sydney, Australia, the place uses chairs made from disused irrigation pipes and keeps away rubbish bins, instead choosing to compost all the waste.

An upstairs garden on the roof supplies the herbs and vegetables while vertical gardens grow strawberries. Yogurt and butter are made on the premises while the food is cooked in wood-fired ovens.

Also, oddly-shaped boards are used for plates while beer mugs are made from cut-down beveled bottles! Everything out here seems to be recycled, and for $70, you can fill up two groaning stomachs with some great food and drinks!

Greenhouse by Joost Sydney - "Joost designed and made the chairs from aluminium irrigation pipes and the seats are made from leather off-cuts from a Victorian tannery. They are remarkably comfortable."
