The motto at Pizza Fusion is, "Saving the Earth, One Pizza at a Time" and that's not just a slogan. Examples of how they promote sustainability include: using company-owned hybrid vehicles for food deliveries; giving customers discounts for bringing back their pizza boxes for recycling; using spudware utensils, made from potatoes, which biodegrade in 50 days; and offsetting their energy use by purchasing wind energy certificates. This location is in the Trader Joe's shopping center.
