Four of our favorite Birmingham restaurants have the gold star of sustainability efforts. The Alabama Environmental Council has welcomed a few more local restaurants into the EAT Alabama program. Keep reading to see if your favorite spots made the cut!
EAT Alabama, a.k.a. “Earth Aware Team”, allows you to know before you go. Know which restaurants are doing their part and putting sustainability first! EAT raises awareness surrounding disposable waste and the impact it has on our health and the health of the planet. Check out the different levels of sustainability here.
With 12 partners now, the organization is quickly growing and looking forward to what’s to come for EAT.
“We want to support and endorse restaurants in adopting sustainable practices such as avoiding styrofoam and reducing waste through composting and food rescue programs. We are excited to bring on our first municipal partner, Mayor Buddy Choat of the city of Trussville, who will be issuing a proclamation on May 26 banning styrofoam at all municipal facilities.”Lauren Guillebeau, Co-Chair, Environmental Issues Committee
