NCC’s Green Seal Case Study Makes It Into Book
What’s just as exciting than being certified by the Green Seal? We think being featured in a book by The Green Seal. Authored by Dr. Cheryl Baldwin, Green Seal’s Vice President of Science & Standards and industry experts, Andrew Shakman and John Turenne the book, Greening Food and Beverage Services: A Green Seal Guide to Transforming the Industry focuses on green practices and standards. Among the list of green properties featured in the book, Washington, D.C.’s only LEED certified restaurant Founding Farmers – famous for their eco-friendly practices received well-deserved exposure in Chapter 5.
According to the Green Seal, “The book addresses the issue of greening food services at all levels whether operators are just beginning the journey or are well informed and advanced in reducing their environmental impact. Dr. Baldwin, along with the experts Andrea Shakman and John Turenne have put together a comprehensive resource on greening food services that is sure to become a staple for the industry.”
