Last week, the highly optimal Allison Rogers, invited me to survey the current state of the Greening of the Capitol. To get to the United States Capitol, I struggled out of bed, walked a couple miles to the bus stop, and then took a bus to the metro station, and then rode the metro to DC, and then walked a block to the Capitol. Upon entering, I was duly frisked by the Capitol guards, and proceeded into the building.
Allison was in effect, operating efficiently.
Karissa, our liaison, sauntered in and joined us. She took us on a tour of the dining facilities, beginning with the snack bar.
The snack bar had nutritious junk food.
We made our way to the cafeteria. They were serving Belgian dishes when I was there.
Allison deftly pointed out some locavoristic snacks.
This sign detailed the green elements of the cafeteria.
Allison swiftly acquired some coffee for sampling purposes. It was fair-traded or something...
Erin also had lunch with us. She is the newest member of the Green The Capitol.
All the cups were made of bioplastic, which I found to be quite elite. All compostable waste (including the cups, plates and cutlery) is fed into a mulching machine that transforms the material into a light green mash.
All the cutlery was made of corn or sugarcane, including the straws.
I think this was a green countertop.
I neglected to eat this tempting red cake.
Thank you Allison, Erin and Karissa for showing me the latest developments of Greening Of The Capitol.
