Dear restaurants and business owners who care about the environment, I love you; you are an inspiration. This is my fan letter of gratitude.
Consumers who care, here are a few favorite things:
The Durham Originals:
sustainability, conservation, placemaking, design. What’s not to love?
Lost Boys Food Truck, sustainably certified!
Luna (b/c they used to automatically stick plastic straws in your drink but quit doing that. Plus, their food is slammin’. Try their Jalapeno Lemonade.
La Perla Restaurant in Morehead City (hidden gem of grand proportions)
When you’re on your coastal NC vacation, be sure to use the Plastic Ocean Project’s Ocean-Friendly Establishment Guide!
Thank you Ginger Taylor, Bonnie Monteleone, Lisa Rider, and Kim Wood Beller for your fantastic work on that project and on so many others. You are forces for good.
