Akasha on Being Green

New, 4 comments

Akasha Richmond dishes on opening her eponymous, eco-freindly Culver City resto: "The building itself has killer feng shui. My girlfriend did the feng shui. She told me it would attract...beautiful women and gay men. I said, fine, that’s all I need." And on being green: "We really tried to get solar panels. It would have cost $100,000, and it would have saved 5 percent of our electric bill. I’d rather give the $100,000 to starving children somewhere. Why should I spend $100,000 so I can put out a press release? That doesn’t make any sense. That to me is greenwashing." [DineLA]
