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.

    Hey how is the Renaclaire Kitchen coming up??

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL... 
Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch here in …

Getaway Weekday Trip To Cameron Highlands

UPHILL....

It has been two years since I last made an overnight trip to Cameron Highlands.  It was an impromptu trip, we only talked about it a couple of nights and the next day, all was arranged and done.  My friend rented the apartment from her niece, for two nights, we got a good deal, each of us only paid RM50 for a two nights stay.  Of course, it was an off peak season, otherwise we could not get the good deal offer.  LOL.... My friends planned everything from A to Z, they even went marketing to buy all the food stuff needed, pre-cooked some to take up for our steamboat dinner in the evening.  The weather was very cooling and nice, we had to wear our jackets especially in the evenings and mornings. 

Started off our journey by eating something light from Ipoh cos we have planned to take something good for lunch in Tringkap.  On the way, we stopped at a place called Green View Garden for some desserts before proceeding for our lunch.  Hmmmm... desserts before main meal?
Our fir…

Gathering At Top Grade Hot Soup, Ipoh

HOT SOUP ON RAINY DAYS... Yes, nowadays it pours, almost every day and in the late afternoon.  So cooling that I do not need to switch on the air con these days.  For cooling days, it is best to drink hot soup but do not land into one, okay?  LOL.. 
A few of my classmates planned an evening out at Top Grade restaurant at Festival Walk area.  I did not know that Ipoh has a branch, my first time was taken in Penang.  The boss told us that they have a branch in Ipoh, that sounds great!  I like their soup cooked with coconut water, the sweet taste is there... but funny, I don't know it is me or the soup, I still find the one I ordered in Penang is much nicer than this Ipoh branch.  I tried two times in Ipoh, my verdict?  The soup is still better in Penang.. okay, Penang wins!  The coconut soup base looks like this.....  Consisting of chicken, pig stomach, chestnuts, corn, red dates...  It cost RM58 since I am a member.. otherwise it is RM78... Others are add-ons...  And the soup gang…
