VAUGHAN, Ont. — Prime Pubs has completely eliminated plastic straws from all its locations across Canada, including Fionn MacCool’s, D’Arcy McGee’s, Paddy Flaherty’s and Tír nan Òg. Paper straws will be available, but only upon request.
“Pubs are built on the foundation of community where people come together to create positive, meaningful connections,” says Grant Cobb, senior vice-president, Prime Pubs. “We’re constantly looking for creative ways to give back, do the right thing and dig our community roots even deeper. Sustainability is a natural part of that.”
Cocktails with a Conscience is another way Prime Pubs reduces waste. Drinks such as Kitchen Sink Caesar and Green Goddess Margarita are made with quality ingredients, such as celery trimmings, tomato tops and bottoms and cilantro or mint stems.
“We’ve had a lot of fun creating these specialty recipes that are sustainably satisfying,” says Nathan Cameron, director, Beverage with Recipe Unlimited Corporation. “These drinks are delicious and ensure every ounce of goodness goes into our bellies and not into landfill.”
