"I've created the dining area as a space within a space, using all sustainable materials. The design is like an installation that functions both as a restaurant space and a platform for talks and debate." Linda Bergrth, Designer of the Zero-Waste Bistro.

The arched blue walls are constructed from rewall naked board, a material made from food container waste. Meanwhile, the long dining table is built from a material called Durat, a surface material that's combined with granulated post-industrial waste to give it a speckled appearance.
On average, a medium-size restaurant produces more than a ton of waste each week.
'It's time to rethink the way we live, the way we eat and the materials we use. Our seas are filled with plastic waste. in the US alone, over 58 billion disposable cups are discarded and sent to landfills every year. what if all of those cups were reusable, compostable or recyclable? what if our everyday packaging was made of plastic-free materials, reducing plastic pollution and toxic microplastics in our soil and water supply. What if we collectively committed to only buying products that we love and that will last a lifetime?" Kaarina Gould, Executive Director of the Finnish Cultural Institute.
