Lobero Theater to be honored as "Green" business

Many new buildings on the Central and South Coast are getting high marks for being environmentally friendly.

But, a historic old building in Santa Barbara is now celebrating being certified as a “green” business.

The Lobero Theater’s multi-million dollar facelift included low flow toilets and eco-friendly lighting and landscaping. The theater also uses biodegradable products for food services, and has a composting program for scraps.

The Lobero will be honored for its efforts at a Green Business event in Buellton tomorrow.
