So last night we tried the Ft. Worth Food Park for the first time and fell in love. I know, you are asking how that has anything to do with recycling, but it has a lot to do with it. Our business isn't just a business to us. It really is more about making a long term impact on all that we can for better living. The way I look at it, you aren't living with old junk in your closet, those old electronics aren't leaking hazardous chemicals into a landfill polluting all those things they tend to do, and we are working hard to get a process, no a standard, for all the things we use.
Part of our lifestyle is "reducing' the material things and that's exactly what the food park has done. Think picnic tables on rocks under aged trees. You sit family style with people you've never met before and you can't help but make friends. We met some amazing people of all ages there last night, oh, and the food was great. No dishes here, but all things that can be recycled. AND they know it, because right next to the garbage bins were recycling bins. How many restaurants in this area do that?
The vendors in their simplistic trailers were toting farm-fresh ingredients designed to bring comfort to those enjoying. The food represented would satisfy the carnivore to the vegan, gluten free friend. At least for me, I find myself enthralled with places like this because there's no pressure to buy a new outfit, no pressure to spend a paycheck on dinner, and I don't know, I just feel like this was how life was before our concrete walls took over.
If you are looking for something new, and something I believe is better than any 5-star restaurant I have had to play pretentious at, then check it out...bring your friends (it's that kind of place)!
