Eat at Restaurants That Source Sustainable Food
In our efforts to live sustainably at home, we want to support and demand those same practices in all the businesses we give money to. When you go out to eat at a restaurant, it is harder for you to control their practices and where their food came from. So, try to go to restaurants that source their food from sustainable and local sources. They will likely mention this approach on their website or in their menu. Look for organic food at a minimum. For meat, it should be grass fed. Seafood from sustainable sources should be approved by Monterey Bay Seafood Watch. Typically, if a restaurant mentions what farms they get their food from, it is a good sign that they care about their source of food and are trying to support a local and good farm. Otherwise, they try to buy the cheapest food ingredients they can, and those sources could be questionable.
