Going Green with IRB GreenFest!
Don’t let the red claws fool you, because The Original Crabby Bill’s is going greener by the day! We’re focused on lessening our negative impact on the environment – from sourcing our products sustainably to using 100-percent plant-based compostable and biodegradable cups, straws and lids at our restaurant. We have switched from polypropylene to 100% renewable resource based biodegradable items, which are made entirely from plants, not petroleum. They are also annually renewable, which means they are made from resources that can be replenished naturally within one year.
We are also focused on sourcing eco-friendly foods, like Sixty South Salmon, which meets some of the industry’s highest standards for sustainable fishing. Our commitment to serve only responsibly sourced food items includes more than fish: Rhode Island calamari, Alaskan crab, Florida-farmed beef even for burgers, and local mullet cut and smoked on premises just to name a few. We closely follow Monterey Bay Aquarium’s Seafood Watch, which sets standards for sustainable aquaculture, and base many of our menu choices on their research.
We also host regular beach clean-ups in partnership with organizations like Keep Pinellas Beautiful, Action 2000, and the Indian Rocks Beach Homeowners Association. Partnering with organizations like Keep Pinellas Beautiful, Action 2000, and the Indian Rocks Beach Homeowners Association has helped us to make a positive impact on our beaches with the support of our staff and the community. We are excited to take part in this year’s GreenFest, which helps encourage community members to reduce their carbon footprint. IRB Greenfest has eco-friendly vendors and non-profit organizations to teach us how to be kinder and gentler to our earth. Join us this Saturday, March 23rd from 10am-5pm and enjoy delicious local food, craft beer provided by The Original Crabby Bill’s, wine, live music and an array of unique items from a variety of local vendors.
