Candle Cafe

Uptown vegetarian stalwart Candle Café (1037 Third Ave) does
all the responsible things: composting wasted food, comprehensive
recycling, alternative electric power, recycled paper for menus,
non-toxic everything. Of course, they’re also vegetarian, local (as
much as possible) and organic, three vital approaches to food that are
as important for our own health as they are for the health of the
planet. Seriously, the American food-industrial complex is just about
the worst thing for the Earth we can think of; and please don’t bring
out the old saw of feeding a starving planet with vast monocrops: we
have more food here than we know what to do with.

  • Nice article I interned for an eco-friendly auction/swap site . We participated in the Go Green Expo in April (in the Hilton Hotel ) , wish our website would have been nominated .

  • Time’s Up rocks! I personally volunteer with this group and it’s amazing how much they get done with only volunteers and a very small budget. You can truly see the positive changes all over the city. Time’s Up definitely deserves this award after all of it’s long hard work and it’s nice to see they are finally being recognized. Thank you Time’s Up for making my New York City a more environmentally friendly place.

  • Check out my blog , I’m a teen trying to help the world and inform myself and others of the importance that being green can do .
    I think it’s awesome that people are trying to do the right thing in the green scene .
