With summer in full swing, we bet you’re reaching for the tequila when it comes time to get the party started. While Cuervo may be you first choice, why not consider gulping down some Casa Herradura instead? A great example of how food and drink businesses can function successfully with sustainability in mind, Casa Herradura has been making changes to offset their environmental footprint over the past 15 years. The company uses everything from wastewater reuse and filtration, to renewable energy from a waste-to-energy process, to composting and recycling. We say cheers to that!
