Ecopolis Café in Boerum Hill, Brooklyn

 The Ecopolis Café at 180 Smith (at Warren)  in Boerum Hill sells "local sustainable food and drinks" and organic teas. The café uses biodegradable and recycled paper, recycles materials and composts scraps.

This bar is made from salvaged materials, and power come from solar panels on the roof.

 The whole building is made from "eco-friendly materials and features energy efficient systems," according to the Brooklyn Ecopolis website, which also says that the Brooklyn Ecopolis Resource Center will provide programs and exhibits for children and adults, "involving all members of the community in practical and realistic ways, to engage and promote sustainable living."
