KANSAS CITY, Missouri - Boulevard Brewery is adding another green element to its resume just in time for Earth Day.
Boulevard is getting ready to flip the switch on an electric vehicle charging station at its headquarters. Now visitors can drink some local brew and charge their car at the same time. The station will of course be available to employees as well.
The port is just the fifth one in the Kansas City region.
The charging station isn't the brewery's first green venture. First the brewery started its Ripple Glass program, placing bright purple recycling bins around the city.
Then this week, Boulevard finished the installation of solar panels on its green roof.
Boulevard is also the second company in the area to become a zero landfill facility.
Everything at the brewery is recycled, composted or used as an alternative fuel source.
