Our team

We’re passionate foodies, deeply concerned about the environment

We’re tired of worrying about how our daily eco-friendly habits — biking, composting, thrifting, and so on — aren’t doing enough to help our environment.

We love cooking and dining at restaurants and have seen firsthand how the restaurant industry can become a leader in sustainability. We know that restaurateurs and diners alike want to make the world a better place.

That’s what we’re here to do: help diners choose restaurants committed to the environment.
