Eco-Friendly Boozing

First green restaurants and now green bars? Fabulous! Now you can party the night away and not feel terrible about killing the planet (but maybe just feel terrible in general the next morning.) The Huffington Post put together a slideshow of green bars popping up around the nation. They all are considered eco-friendly for different reasons and not necessarily 100 percent green, but they all are proving to take steps in the right direction for business known for large amounts of waste. Check out their list here. Some of their green attributes include local, sustainable food and drinks, earth-friendly products and design, led lighting and even turning cooking oils into biodiesel. Nice! Be sure to check out number 7 on the list, Arlington's own Domaso. They practice multiple means of being green including using soy ink for menus.
