green was cool
Sustainable business practices and adding value to the neighborhoods in which we do business have guided us in all our decisions since we first opened Bistro Bella Vita back in 1997. We have carefully chosen each location and were on the ground floor of the local food movement in Grand Rapids, first partnering with Ingraberg Farm in Rockford in 1997. We have become the local experts in our region for farm-to-plate cuisine including local and sustainable produce, dairy and meats.
a few of the sustainable practices we follow:
- Local Chemical-Free Produce
- Recycle All Waste
- LEED® Certified Building
- Support Sustainable Farming
- Zero Storm Water Runoff
- All Printing on 100% PCW Paper
- Energy-Efficient Equipment & High-Efficiency HVAC
- Fluorescent Light Bulbs
- No & Low VOC Finishes
- Low-flow Water Fixtures
- Reduced Heat Island Effect
