When people try to choose a restaurant to dine in, they will consider various factors. First of all, they’ll want an eatery that serves up the cuisine they want to try that night. Then, they need to find a restaurant that has good reviews so that they know the food is going to be up to scratch. But these days, diners also want to know whether or not a restaurant is sustainable and environmentally friendly. The environment is a hot topic right now as many people are worried about climate change. As a result, they want to make sure that their lifestyle is as green as possible - and this also goes for the restaurants in which they eat.


So, are you interested in turning your menu and whole restaurant green? If so, you need these very useful tips and tricks.


Train Your Staff In Sustainability


When you do decide to go completely eco-friendly, it is important that your staff know why you are doing this and how they can improve their day to day methods and processes so that they can complete their work as greenly as possible. The best way to do this is to train your staff. Ideally, you should teach them the background of eco-friendly best practices so that they understand why they are important. If you buy any new equipment that is a lot friendlier to the environment, you will also need to teach them how to use these.


Use Other Green Businesses


You will no doubt have a long list of suppliers and companies whose services and products you require for your restaurant. It’s a good idea to research each and every one of these to make sure that they have the same eco-friendly and green values and practices that you want to see in your company. You might want to find a food waste management company who can help you dispose of your waste in an ethical manner, rather than simply dumping it at a landfill site. You should also look for ingredient suppliers who are locally based and use ethical farming and food production methods.

Recycle As Much As Possible


Not only can recycling help reduce your waste, but it can also make your business a whole lot greener. There are various ways you can recycle. You might want to use leftover ingredients to make compost. This is great if your chefs have their own vegetable and herb gardens. Plus, rather than throwing out old items of furniture, it’s worth considering how you could upcycle them or reclaim the materials to use for something else.


Take Your Advertising Online


Printing out leaflets and posters can be expensive and bad for the environment. For this reason, lots of restaurants have now taken all of their advertising online. Thanks to social media, you can now get your adverts out there and seen by thousands of people. And you won’t have to worry about all the trees that are used in the paper for printed advertising!

Are you ready to make your restaurant sustainable?

  1. This topic is very interesting and inspiring until I read it twice. I like this Green business concept as I fully support recycling and take the trouble to dispose all my garbage properly. I will follow this idea if I ever open a restauramt.

GETTING HEALED AGAIN... this time four of us went to August Healing for other sweet and savoury delights.  This time when we went up to the little cafe, the tables were all occupied except for one.  Next time we must not go during lunch time.  Mistake....  Anyway, we managed to get a table near the window while waiting for another two of my friends to arrive.  First time visit for them and I hope they like the food there as much as I like them.  We ordered three different varieties to share as we had a heavy breakfast in the morning....  Which shall I choose? Berries bread pudding today....  Forgot what this is called....  Garlic honey scones...  Coffee for my friends.... As for me, I had Chamomile tea....  We ordered one croissant to share.... Smoked duck and omelette fillings... Full to the brim... RM15....  Quiche again.... different fillings this time... RM15 And a Happy Birthday piece of cheese cake... RM14.. Though just a few varieties, we were very full.... For dinner, I just ha

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL...

Saw it on Facebook, one of my friends put up the fresh curry buns she ordered.  Yours truly saw and salivated and the next thing, I have the details I needed.  During the weekdays, the Breadlady has different kinds of buns and on Saturdays, she makes shepherd pies.  Since I got the details on Friday, I quickly messaged her and ordered 5 packets!  No, I did not eat them all, I ordered for my friends too, they have the same common interest as I do.  LOL...  ' Each set of shepherd pie comes with 2 fresh buns costing RM15.   I like her packing.... Brown paper bag with this slogan... Freshly baked with love...  The pies were still warm when they were delivered to right to  my doorstep with no extra charge... So nice!
