Chicago's Green Restaurants

Ben and I traveled to Chicago for the holidays and were delighted to find Chicago's positive green economy growing at an unstoppable pace. Chicago is known for its great restaurants and the city has a reputation for greenness, and now the two are combining with explosive potential for greener practices and policies. This convergence is having a significant impact on the restaurant sector's impacts on the environment.

Uncommon Ground LogoThe Green Chicago Restaurant Coalition is an organization dedicated to greening the Chicago restaurant community through green purchasing assistance, educational initiatives, and the “Guaranteed Green” certification program.

 We had brunch at the Greenest Restaurant in the United States! (According to the Green Restaurant Association) In addition to creating delicious chilaquiles and challah french toast, the owners of Uncommon Ground, take great care to choose the best environmental options for their cafe. 

They built an organic rooftop garden, produce no waste, power their vehicle with used fryer oil, harness the sun to heat their water, and cook with locally sourced products. Wouldn't it be great if every restaurant did this?
