For those of us that enjoy dining out, we might focus on the selection of organic and natural foods on the menu. But let’s take this commitment to a natural life one step further by requiring more from the shops that get our business. Investigate the steps your favorite restaurant has taken to conserve energy, recycle materials, and reduce pollution. You can find out more about this topic here including how to encourage your favorite restaurant to incorporate more green practices.
We can all green our dining experience by bringing our own coffee mugs and to-go boxes to reduce waste when eating out. If you have a local restaurant that is making an effort to be more eco-friendly let them know you appreciate their efforts and encourage them to continue their pursuit of sustainability.
