The increasing amount of scientific data imploring us to take better care of our planet may lead you to ask yourself, “What can I do to help?” There are plenty of life choices we all can make to help us lead greener lives, but if you’re a food lover, Clean Air Council has a tasty way to put your money where your mouth is.
Dine Out for the Environment is a Clean Air Council fundraising event where you can visit restaurants who are doing their part by donating 15-30% of the day’s sales to help CAC advocate for responsible environmental policy in Pennsylvania. In addition to help from area restaurants, 2017 Dine Out for the Environment is sponsored by The Energy Co-Op, Natural Awakenings Magazine and Grid Magazine.
Dine Out for the Environment is an all day event, and while many restaurants are in and around Center City, we encourage you to go farther and take a journey by bike or Septa to participating restaurants in other neighborhoods. We love biking at Go Philly Go, and will be riding out two participating restaurants for some happy hour snacks and drinks. We encourage you to plan your own food adventure for the environment, and help CAC fight to keep our air clean! Here’s ours...
Square at 1682
121 South 17th St
Square 1682 has us covered with locally sourced Modern American dishes like pan-seared cobia and wild mushroom risotto. Be sure to check out the local craft beer selection and imaginative cocktail list featuring seasonal and classic drinks like the Aloe-Rita, made from Tres Agaves Reposado tequila, aloe infused grappa, lime, Jamaican jerk bitters, or the Punch Drunk Love, which uses Tito’s Vodka, Aperol, lemon, grapefruit, pomegranate, celery shrub bitters and Brut.
1720 Fairmount Ave
It's a quick ride north on 18th to Fairmount Ave to Bar Hygge. This brewpub has a selection of house made craft beer and a solid cocktail list to help you relax after a long day of eating and exploring the city. If you are a curious foodie like us, you may want to try the reuben duck wings or the jerk tofu lettuce wraps.
The Clean Air Council gets funding through donations, and events like Dine Out for the Environment, so we rely on the generosity of our sponsors, and people like you to help us keep fighting against polluters who threaten our right to clean air. If you can’t make it out to these restaurants, or if you want to contribute to us further, please visit our donations page at our website and give today.
