Why—and How!—Your Restaurant Should Celebrate Earth Day 2016
Earth Day 2016 is right around the corner. As a restaurant owner or manager, celebrate this holiday as an opportunity to make an impact on the environment and gain the loyalty of eco-minded customers. Here are three effective ways your restaurant establishment can celebrate the planet and encourage environmentally friendly practices among your local community.
How Your Restaurant Can Celebrate Earth Day
#1 Cook up Eco-Friendly Promotions and Dishes to Honor the Planet
Craft sustainable, locally-sourced recipes for a special Earth Day menu. Or, offer the signature eco-cocktail for the upcoming holiday—the Earth Day Treetini. Mimic Chicago’s Elate innovative and eco-minded restaurant promotion by planting a tree for every Treetini sold.
+ 3 oz. VeeV Acai Spirit
+ 1 oz. St. Germain Elderflower Liqueur
+ 1 oz. PAMA Pomegranate Liqueur
+ A dash of freshly squeezed lemon juice
#2 Initiate a Restaurant Recycling Program
Even eco-friendly ingredients won’t stand a chance if they’re served in a unsustainable food container. If you offer to-go menu options, make sure your containers are recyclable. Also, consider a publically announced recycling program so customers are aware you’re making efforts to better the environment and the local community.
#4 Invest in Energy Efficient Commercial Kitchen Equipment
Last but not least, make sure your restaurant’s kitchen equipment is energy efficient. Upgrading to efficient or Energy Star qualified equipment is not only good environmental stewardship, but can also save you up to $15,000 each year in energy expenses.
