In December 2009, Joost Bakker, an Australian designer involved in sustainable construction launched the  waste-free „Greenhouse“ restaurant in Perth. In 2011 this was followed by another temporary Greenhouse in Sidney, that has been dismantled and will now go on tour through Europe.

So, what is so special about these restaurants? Everything was planned from scratch to achieve maximum sustainability and recyclability:

1, the building itself: All the material used in the construction are recyclable or recycled. For the frame steel and straw bales for the insulation are used which are then clad with plywood. The furniture includes chairs made from old road signs and aluminium irrigation pipes or light shade made from old fencing wire. The waste water from the kitchen is re-used in the rooftop gardens where parts of the food for the restaurant is grown…

2. the food: What can not be grown in the rooftop garden is produced as sustainably as possible. Fresh milk is delivered directly from a farm and then processed to butter, yoghurt and mozzarella cheese. Wheat is grinded to flour and used for bread, pastries, pasta etc. All the organic wastes are composted and recycled as fertilizer in the rooftop gardens. It is even possible to make cola and soda in the restaurant.
