It!Me- Eco-Friendly Fast Food Chainby Chloe, Posted June 22nd, 2012 Tweet
It!me is a new chain of eco-friendly fast-food restaurants in Poland founded by Joanna Pszczółka and Łukasz Brandys. Because the partners did not have an inexhaustible budget, they relied on creativity and innovation to distinguish their brand without spending an enormous amount of money. Their first store is located in Ochaby’s Dream Park. By installing minimalist tables that are screwed directly into the wall and using chairs that are glued together with biodegradable adhesive, they have tremendously minimized their material use. The floor to ceiling windows enhance the tight space. The walls are made of concrete block, covered in a non-woven geotextile and clad in coniferous timber slats.
Joanna Pszczółka and Łukasz Brandys wanted to create a hip experience in their fast-food restaurant, while reducing having as little toll on the environment as possible. It!me uses only recycled and recyclable paper for burger sleeves and uses only 25% of the amount of paper that conventional fast-food joints use. Hopefully, It!me will be able to continue their growth and build more eco-friendly restaurants in Poland and around the world.
