The Sustainable Pittsburgh Movement: What You Need to Know
Everyone is trying to improve their diets, but eating smart goes far beyond just choosing nutritious, well-prepared food. Today, it is more important than ever to ensure the ingredients which go into the meals for you and your family come from socially and economically friendly sources. Not only will your food taste better and be better for you, but you will feel better knowing you are helping to protect the environment as well as local businesses and their employees.
Sustainable Pittsburgh Movement
The Sustainable Pittsburgh Restaurant movement makes it easy for diners to identify local restaurants which are dedicated to promoting sustainability in their communities. Before a restaurant can become involved in the Sustainable Pittsburgh Restaurant movement, it must go through a 149 point assessment. This comprehensive assessment addresses a wide range of business practices including a restaurant’s general operations, the way it handles food and water waste, how effectively it uses energy, it’s community outreach and staffing practices, the sourcing of the ingredients and the nutrition of the food on the menu. Based on the restaurant’s total score, it then receives a rating from Starter to Platinum along with a sign to display.
Now is the time to become more proactive when it comes to making sure you are eating delicious, healthy food which is good for the planet, the community and your body. The first step starts with you. If you would like to learn more about the involvement of your favorite restaurants in the Sustainable Pittsburgh Restaurant movement, visit the organization’s website.
