Birmingham Environmental Partnership
Green Restaurant Awards
Each year, the Birmingham Environmental Partnership asks restaurants across the city to show their green credentials and their expertise in one of four categories (Waste Management, Energy Reduction, Staff and Community, Purchasing).
Zulu was asked to design an award that encompassed the vision of the Green Restaurant Awards. Clearly a resin block was not going to be the answer, the design needed to convey food and conservation.
We sourced FSC certified wooden shopping boards, onto each board was printed the category winner and category using vegetable inks, printed directly onto the chopping board itself. The title of winner was given very special treatment, we created each one over an 8 week period by dry pressing a series of real herbs and forming them into the winning title. They were then mounted onto the boards for a very unique and highly sort award. The wooden chopping boards fitted perfectly into the awards theme and are easily mouted either in kitchens or like the winning hotels in their main reception areas.
These beautifully hand-crafted pieces have become very sort after by all the particpating restaurants.
