It’s Elemental, Being Green

It figures that Elements Restaurant and Bar (129 E. Anapamu St., 884-9218), named after the four states of matter-earth, wind, fire, water-would care about those very things. Sure enough, the establishment eagerly attempts to preserve the environment. It has long been a supporter of sustainable fishing practices, while it also attempts to source its meats from Pineland Farms, which features free-roaming, grass-feeding animals that receive no antibiotics. What’s more, it seems the old adage is now “something old, something new, something borrowed, something green.” “It’s common for brides to ask us about our green practices when they are shopping for wedding caterers,” said special events coordinator Bernadette Pometta. “We’re proud to be at the top of their list.”
