Birdbath, neighborhood green bakery
Today I was reading one of my new favorite magazines PLENTY and came across an ad for Birdbath, a "green" bakery in NYC. I decided to check it out on the web @ www.buildagreenbakery.com. The entire store is made of green materials. The walls are made of wheat, the bakery is wind-powered, all ingredients are organic, the floors are reclaimed wood, and I could go on & on. They bake all their goodies in the East Village location and transport them by bike rickshaw to the shop in the West Village. Birdbath also offers a 25% discount to those who arrive by bike or skateboard! The web site is great and provides details on their local ingredients and eco-friendly building supplies. Next time you are in NYC stop in for a muffin and some locally roasted coffee.
