Being green should be on everyone’s mind, given the lasting impact it has on our planet and future generations. But if going zero-waste sounds like a daunting task, don’t worry because it’s not supposed to be a feat that can be achieved overnight. Instead, look to incorporate simple sustainable habits into your daily routine, the way Malcolm Wood and Xuan Mu have done. Co-founders of Maximal Concepts, the pair recently opened John Anthony, a 7,000 sq ft restaurant that serves contemporary Chinese fare and an impressive selection of gins.
