Last week, after joining the association with my own restaurant a year ago, I decided to help the Green Restaurant Association attract more restaurants. Currently, the GRA is the biggest and longest running sustainable restaurant certification in the country. They recently partnered with the New York State Restaurant Association (NYSRA) and also Restaurant Associates. Restaurant Associates runs all of the cafes and restaurants in museums across the US.
To be honest, not enough restaurants are in the association and now it is my goal to get more restaurants involved. If you have a moment, please check out the Green Restaurant Association website
. It has done great things for our restaurant and our customers appreciate a well thought out benchmark of sustainability.
