The average American spends about half of their food budget dining out.  For some people, that is thousands of dollars per year dining at restaurants.  The environmental impact of dining out is immense.  When you are served by a waiter/waitress, you likely give a tip of 15% or more.  Now it is time to Tip the Planet.  The vegetables, meat, water, and everything you consume at a restaurant comes from a plant, tree, animal, river, ocean, and when you are done with your meal, that is the same place where the waste goes, back to the Earth.  You can now give back by Tipping the Planet 3% of your restaurant bill.  Use the calculator to see how much you spend dining out each year.  It will then automatically calculate Tip for the Planet.  You then will have the option to contribute that 3% to help the restaurant industry become more environmentally sustainable.
