One Atlantic has become certified as a 2 Star Certified Green Restaurant® in New Jersey. One Atlantic, the fully over water venue in Atlantic City, has been in the process of receiving this certification for over a year. One Atlantic is only the sixth restaurant in New Jersey to meet the GRA's rigorous Green Restaurant® 4.0 standards.
"We are ecstatic to become a Certified Green Restaurant® in New Jersey. This recognition allows One Atlantic to provide another unique aspect to customers at our venue—from green weddings to corporate events", says Owner Jesse Herman. "We love that we can now bring this additional level of distinctive guest experience."
In accordance with the GRA's Certification standards, 2 Star Certified Green Restaurants® must meet a minimum of 100 points in six of seven key environmental categories. To achieve this significant milestone, One Atlantic earned 122. 87 points and completed 38 steps, including:
- Implementing a full-scale recycling program, significantly decreasing the restaurant's landfill waste
- Installing an Energy Star rated reach-in, ice machine, dish machine, and office equipment
- Purchasing 15% of their monthly foods from vegetarian sources
- Using low-flow spray valves on their hand washing and prep sinks, which save thousands of gallons of water and significant energy
