Green Dining

Most of us try to be green at home by Reducing, Reusing and Recycling, but taking that attitude with you when you leave the house can have a much larger impact. Green dining is one example. Restaurants account for one third of all retail electrical consumption, according to the non-profit Green Restaurant Association. They publish an online guide that currently lists green-minded restaurants and cafes in 28 states. By patronizing restaurants and other businesses with a green conscience, we make a statement that reverberates beyond our immediate community.
