2019 Green Resolutions for Consumers

January 22, 2019

Dining out has significantly grown in popularity, to the point that Americans now spend more money dining out than on groceries. Consumers have more of an impact than ever before while dining out, and luckily there are plenty of ways to dine green. 


The GRA has created a list of some Green Resolutions that consumers can implement. What is your green resolution for the year? 


Some ideas for you:

  • Dine at a Certified Green Restaurant®

  • Dine at restaurants that are accessible by public transportation

  • Order a vegetarian dish

  • Bring your own reusable take-out containers, straws, mugs, etc.

  • Order only what you can eat

  • Choose dishes with local and/or organic ingredients

  • Tell your favorite restaurant about the GRA

  • Order dishes that contain sustainable seafood (don’t know what seafood is sustainable? Check here: https://www.seafoodwatch.org)

  • At take-out or fast casual restaurants, make sure to place your leftovers and disposables in the proper bin (recycling, composting, trash)

  • Don’t buy bottled water

  • Bring your own bag and containers for leftovers

  • Use hand dryers in restrooms instead of paper towels


We hope you have a wonderful and green New Year! Have any other ideas? Feel free to share in the comments section below.
