Green Dining Alliance Crawl

REGISTRATION NOW CLOSED, WALK IN’S WELCOME!

Maplewood, Missouri’s Special Business District has been named the nation’s 1st Green Dining District. The designation comes from the Green Dining Alliance (GDA), a restaurant sustainability certification program of St. Louis Earth Day. The GDA works with restaurants to reduce their environmental impact by completing an on-site audit that evaluates all areas of operations, and by setting personalized goals with each Member. Green practices include reducing, recycling, and composting restaurant waste; operating facilities with efficiency; and sourcing sustainable food, to-go ware, and cleaning supplies. The evening will begin with a brief presentation about GDA certification at Schlafly Bottleworks. Attendees will then enjoy all that this walkable district has to offer via a crawl of the GDA establishments.

OBJECTIVES: 

  • Explain the Green Dining Alliance (GDA) restaurant sustainability certification program.
  • Learn how GDA restaurants reduce, recycle and compost restaurant waste.
  • Investigate procedures used by GDA restaurants to source sustainable products and operate their facilities with efficiency.
  • Explore restaurants in the nation’s first Green Dining District.
