Reduce Your Impact … At a Restaurant

Order Filtered Tap Water

  • Restaurants that filter tap water already score big but if filtering is not a practice they employ, even regular tap water is better than plastic or glass bottles.

Order Seasonal Foods

  • Eating in season fruits and vegetables gives you great taste and keeps your food supply more local, limiting the carbon footprint of your meal.

Bring Your Own Reusable Container for Leftovers

  • FACT: Styrofoam containers take more than 500 years to decompose in a landfill.

Walk, Bike or Use Public Transportation

  • Work off the calories from the extra dessert by walking or biking to lunch. For longer trips, try public transportation.

    FACT: Public transportation saves more than 855 million gallons of gas and 45 million barrels of oil per year – equivalent to the energy used to heat, cool and operate one fourth of all American homes annually.
