LEAF Reveals its 2nd Annual “Canada’s Greenest Restaurants” List 

LEAF is proud to announce our latest list of Canada’s Greenest Restaurants in recognition of Earth Day, an annual day dedicated to globally celebrating Earth’s natural environment.

LEAF is once again celebrating Earth Day by shining a light on Canadian restaurants that have made a commitment to be as environmentally responsible as possible. Our 2nd Annual “Canada’s Greenest Restaurants” list helps customers choose eating establishments that are doing their part to reduce the impact the restaurant industry has on the environment.

LEAF is pleased to recognize the following companies that are working with LEAF to reduce their environmental impact in 10 key areas of sustainability:

BRITISH COLUMBIA 

  • Locals | Courtenay, Vancouver Island

ALBERTA

ONTARIO

NEWFOUNDLAND
  • Bitters – Memorial University of Newfoundland | St. John’s
 

With increasing pressure by the public for companies to adopt environmental and sustainable programs, restaurateurs are quickly recognizing the value in LEAF certification.As the only nationwide environmental and sustainable certification program for the Canadian Foodservice Industry, we’re looking forward to adding many more restaurants and organizations across Canada to the list in 2013. There are tremendous environmental and financial benefits to being a LEAF member, including a reduction in energy, water and waste costs.

Anyone can help by visiting a LEAF certified restaurant in your area, or by asking your favourite restaurant to be greener by becoming LEAF certified!
