100% Waste-Free Restaurant, Sydney


If you're visiting Sydney, dine sans guilt in a new, pop-up Sydney restaurant which claims to operate 100 percent waste-free.

Located in Sydney Australia’s Rock District, The Greenhouse is a temporary site housed in an old shipping container. Furniture is produced  from old irrigation pipes, the floor is made recycled industrial conveyer belts and drinking glasses are fashioned out of beer bottles. Food waste is also composted and used to fertilise the rooftop garden.

Up-and-coming Australian chef Matt Stone heads up the kitchen which makes many of its pizzas and sandwiches made from flour stone-ground on site.
