Slideshow: Growing Bamboo Sushi fishes for deeper impact
By Mason Walker
When it comes to validating sustainability claims, Bamboo Sushi has opted to get as much 3rd-party support as they can fit on their window.
Bamboo Sushi, heralded as the most sustainable sushi restaurant in America, is expanding.
By the end of the year, the restaurant will add to its Portland footprint by adding a second restaurant on Northwest 23rd Avenue.
At the same time, Kristofor Lofgren, Bamboo Sushi's creator and owner is continuing to look for new ways to push the restaurant's sustainable mission.
In the Sustainable Business Oregon series [3BL]oomhing Honcho, we talk to Lofgren about Bamboo Sushi's plans to purchase about 405,000 acres of ocean and use sharks to illustrate the fragility of the ocean ecosystem.
Here we take a look inside Bamboo's Southeast Portland location and learn more about the sushi supply chain. (Click on the image to the right to view the slideshow.)
