The Nature Conservancy is asking OpenTable diners to nominate their favorite green restaurants for a Nature’s Plate award, a contest to identify the people’s choice for an area’s top green restaurant.
Wondering which restaurants to vote for? Consider eateries that are using sustainable seafood, free-range and grass-fed meat, organic produce, locally sourced food, and tap water (rather than bottled water).
While the contest is focused on restaurants, it’s only the start of a conversation about food, conservation, and The Nature Conservancy’s work with farmers, fishermen, and ranchers. To participate, click on your city and then nominate your favorite green restaurant. You can also learn more about what makes a restaurant green.
Nominations will be open September 3-16, semifinal voting will begin October 1, and the winners will be announced October 17.
