SANTA FE, NEW MEXICO — After years of attending seminars and conducting independent research, local bar manager Amelia Lund has recently taken huge strides in sustainability behind her bar in the downtown Santa Fe area.  


“I jumped down the rabbit hole of anti-waste and sustainability, trying to find the answer. Eventually, after many insomniac nights of trying to close the loop of the bar, I settled on the obvious solution,” she recapped to us on the phone. “The answer was right there the entire time. We have to close the bar.”


We asked Amelia how she would implement this idea and what her next steps would be.


“I’m probably just going to sit here and try not to breathe too much.”
