Sustainable Saratoga Releases Restaurant Sustainability Guide To Help Local Restaurants Go Green

Sustainable Saratoga Releases Restaurant Sustainability Guide To Help Local Restaurants Go Green

SARATOGA SPRINGS — Over the last year, a small group of Sustainable Saratoga volunteers, led by Marlaina Murphy, have been putting together a sustainability guide for local restaurants. The goal of the project was to create a comprehensive but easy-to-follow guidebook filled with options for restaurants to consider adopting to make their business more sustainable. 

The guide includes information on how to power your business with renewable energy; strategies for reducing energy use; easy ways to reduce food waste; tips to increase recycling and reduce plastic waste production; and much more. The guide also contains specific links for restaurant owners to explore options that are the best fit for their business. 

Becoming more sustainable can be good for business too. Surveys show that many consumers care about the sustainability practices of the places they frequent and are willing to pay more for goods and services when the business is environmentally friendly. Another reason for going green – there are often government incentives available for businesses that undergo energy efficiency improvements.
