Is Parc Green ?
How much crap does a very large restaurant dump?
We have a bunch of friends and acquaintances who are current and former employees of Parc. I always hear about the mad business that this spot generates. I've heard about lines of grinning tourists queued up on weekend mornings as if they are going on a Disney adventure. Parc is a sheeples magnet. I was there on Valentine's morning grabbing a baguette. There was a remarkably homogeneous mob of love birds there to feed. I felt like a voyeur among them as I waited to pay for the bread.
Anyway, along with all that biz, gargantuan loads of recycle-able and compostable material are generated and sent to the land fill. I mean bottles by the thousands and loaves, leafs and left-overs by the tons. SRO is obviously not the only offender maybe not even the worst but a restaurant called Parc is a good target. SRO instituting an enterprise wide green campaign seems unlikely but landfilling tons of crap every day from a Rittenhouse location and having the name Parc gets my goat.
I did check in earlier this week with Parc, via E-mail, to ask about recycling efforts. No answer.
