Bamboo Café French Home Cooking, in Crayton Cove, is the first Naples business to be certified by the city’s Department of Natural Resources and its NPower program as a Naples Certified Green Business. The program is part of a grant-funded energy outreach campaign that identifies the existing environmental attributes of local businesses and makes recommendations for ways to further conserve resources.
The café conducts extensive sustainability and recyling efforts and also serves locally grown, organic produce as seasonally available. A Florida Power and Light evaluation identified and quantified costs and savings, including lighting upgrades, and owners Lisa and Philippe Boet have begun tracking utility bills, from electricity to water and fuel, to better monitor and minimize resource use.
For more information on how a business may become certified or to request a free presentation, call NPower project manager Cloe Waterfield at 239-234-4558 or visit NPowerNaples.com.
