elephant is all about local—the foods in the average meal in America are shipped 1500 miles. For that reason, only locally-owned restaurants are included among our reader favorites; and just as importantly those restaurants that get the greatest percentage of their fare from local farmers and ranchers are given priority.
Leave a comment below re: what your favorite restaurants does that’s green. We encourage comments and votes re: those restaurants that “green” their space, food, utilities—let’s use this coming together of fans of various dining communities to create a give-and-take forum for eco-friendly ideas.
We not only condone but encourage you all to wrangle your supporters, community, aunts, uncles, nephews, distant relatives you haven’t been in touch with for years—anyone with a laptop or PC—to vote once. Vote twice, we’ll kill you.
One final note: don’t worry about ‘winning,” too much—this is meant to be fun, a way to bring our bountiful “green” and “progressive” restaurant community some attention, and a way to let new, would-be patrons and longtime fans alike find out easily what hotspots have the buzz and might be worth checking out.
