Dunkin’ Donuts Goes Green

Tuesday, October 21st, 2008

The first LEED-certified Dunkin’ Donuts store is now open for business in St. Petersburg, Florida. Of course it has the usual green technologies for energy and water conservation. It also has an on-site earthworm compost facility. The solar-powered tank houses 80 pounds of earthworms that eat coffee grounds, paper products, and other ”waste” produced by the store. And leftover baked goods are donated to America’s Second Harvest, a local food bank.
