Become a Green Restaurant


Downtown Bethesda

Bethesda, MD is a unique area located just outside the nation’s capital of Washington, DC. Home to nearly two hundred diverse and delicious restaurants, it seemed only natural to launch a greening restaurant program right outside our office door!

This page is devoted to helping local area restaurants green their business practices and create a more sustainable way to serve healthy, delicious and top quality food to the surrounding community. This program launched in June 2013 in the hope that it can be replicated as a model for other cities and towns working towards lowering their carbon footprint and creating a more sustainable community to live, work, play and EAT!
