FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. Organic pizza restaurant Pizza Fusion announced plans to construct all new stores according to the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design certification standards set forth by the United States Green Building Council.
 
The LEED Green Building Rating System is the nationally-accepted benchmark for the design, construction, and operation of high-performance green buildings. LEED promotes a whole-building approach to sustainability by recognizing performance in five key areas of human and environmental health: sustainable site development, water savings, energy efficiency, materials selection and indoor environmental quality.
 
Pizza Fusion's first LEED-certified restaurant is expected to open in Palm Beach Gardens, Fla., by the end of 2007 followed by a location in Philadelphia shortly thereafter. The LEED-certified restaurants will feature a number of eco-efficient products, techniques and designs, including solar panels.
 
Other eco-friendly store elements will include countertops made from 100 percent recycled detergent bottles, a 120-square-foot glass wall made entirely from reused soda bottles, bamboo flooring, 30 percent recaptured industrial concrete and ceiling panels made from recycled aluminum cans and post-industrial metals.
