Collingswood's Tortilla Press takes the green lead

As I reported on MNN yesterday, The Tortilla Press in Collingswood is going green. In chef Mark Smith's newsletter e-mail, he announced that he was going at it from many angles.

Spring is here and with it – new growth, new life and new ideas at The Tortilla Press.
First, after much thought and consideration, The Tortilla Press is going green. I’ve examined every single aspect of our restaurant and we are making changes everywhere in lighting, heating, take out containers, fair trade products – well, many things – and I am making a pledge to dedicate this restaurant in as many ways as possible to using eco friendly materials. We’ll join other chefs in this effort as part of the SJ Green Dining Association.

Chef Smith is already a supporter of local food. He shops the Collingswood Farmers' Market during the season and takes part in Farm to Fork week.

The Tortilla Press is located at 703 Haddon Avenue in Collingswood. It's a block from the Patco High Speedline, making it easy for Philadalphians to get to, too. If you've never been to the Tortilla Press, you can bring your own wine, beer or even tequilla (to put in their awesome margharittas), the restaurant does not serve alcohol.

Tortilla Press continues to demonstrate why they're one of the best in South Jersey. Have eaten there a couple of times now and will continue to support them. - John
