In addition to properly disposing of 90% from its garbage, the Origin restaurant, in Florianópolis, also carried out a series of alternatives to reduce its environmental impact.

A restaurant located in Florianopolis, in Santa Catarina, has been drawing attention for being the only one in the Brazil to receive the “zero waste” seal. Certification is only given to establishments that implement a series of measures that guarantee the production of only 10% of tailings.

it was the case Natural Origin, opened in 2017, which, in addition to disposing of 90% from its garbage correctly, also carried out a series of alternatives to reduce its environmental impact. One of them was the replacement of kitchen utensils with more sustainable alternatives such as a sponge made from fishing nets and sugarcane bagasse cutlery, which turn into biodegradable material in just three months.

The establishment's dishes are also served in glass jars that can be reused. Customers who return the pots to the restaurant get 1 real discount on their bill. The menu is seasonal and prepared with seasonal products, where nothing contains milk or gluten. For each dish sold, the restaurant also donates 1 real to social projects.

In addition to internal actions, the Natural Origin also created a campaign to propagate sustainable ideas on social networks, called Sete Dias com Lixo Zero. The idea was to encourage people to do different challenges each day – like leaving their car in the garage – and share on social media.
