Serving Sustainability in the South

Simply Buckhead’s latest cover story “Serving Mother Earth” by Michael Jacobs highlights how 3 local food service partners are closing the loop in the Atlanta community through cooking.

With much of the Better Earth team in the South, we know good food is at the heart of the South’s sustainability revolution. From transforming our vegan food scene, to growing the largest food forest in the United States and rebuilding southern soils through urban regenerative agriculture, Atlanta’s food scene is making a statement and a lasting impact. 

As a sustainable solutions provider located in Clarkston, GA just outside of Atlanta, we’re helping restaurants like The Garden Room and Atlas at The St. Regis Atlanta in Buckhead switch from single-use plastics to sustainable packaging made from renewable, regenerative plants grown right here in the Southeast in Tennessee. Through composters like CompostNow, this plant-based packaging, the food residuals that are on it, and the food scraps from cooking that meal can all be turned into compost, a nutrient-rich soil amendment, to grow more crops to feed our community. 

You can check out the impact these Atlanta organizations are making together through compostable packaging in Simply Buckhead’s JAN/FEB 2022 cover story below.
