Local Restaurant Seizes The Sun!

Rancho Cordova, CA – Locally owned Brookfields Restaurant has always taken pride in their wholesome, homemade
fresh food, and in providing exceptional customer service. Brookfields has also been very active in
recycling.

For over a decade they have been saving our landfills by recycling cardboard, glass, paper and
plastic.  Waste grease from their fryers is picked up by a local oil company and converted to biodiesel.
And, they are currently investigating recycling vegetable waste with a local composter.

In addition, biodegradable products are used to package Brookfields “to go” meals, including utensils made from
potatoes.

The Brookfields “green revolution” expanded this month.  Air Systems of Sacramento, and a local
solar products manufacturer, SolarRoofs.com, are installing solar thermal panels to offset hot water
needs at their Folsom Blvd. location.
