Restaurant Recycling: Philly Eatery Uses Old Menus as Coasters

We love restaurants that have new menus every day - a rotating selection keeps things fresh and interesting. But, it sure does create a lot of waste. Every day new menus get printed out and ever day the paper gets thrown into a recycling bin at the end of service. Well, one Philadelphia restaurant is putting all of their paper scraps to use. On a recent visit to new Philly hotspot Jamonera, we noticed that the restaurant had cut its old menus into squares and were using these slips of papers as coasters at the bar.

While it may not have been the most stylish coaster we've ever seen, we appreciate the reduce, reuse, recycle mentality on display at the restaurant. Maybe other haunts should take note of this and follow suit. We certainly were inspired and asked the bartender to reuse our wine glass when we ordered another pour.
