If you know me or have been reading my blog for a long time, you know I love to eat. I try to eat at home as much as I can because I think frequent eating out contributes to a larger environmental footprint. When traveling, though, I kick my my rule out of the window. I love to eat at new restaurants and spend a considerable amount of time researching where to eat.
When researching, I use LocalHarvest.org to look for green restaurants. LocalHarvest is THE website to find organic and locally grown food. LocalHarvest maintains a nationwide online directory of small farms, farmers markets, and other local food sources. Its search engine helps people find products from family farms, local sources of sustainably grown food, and encourages users to establish direct contact with small farms in their local area. LocalHarvest even has an online store that helps small farms develop markets for some of their products beyond their local area. I love it!
So, green your travel by eating at green restaurants! Find them through LocalHarvest.org!
