ChowGreen(tm) Award Requirements

The ChowGreen(tm) award is a new way that Chow Geeks recognizes restaurants that have sustainable business practices. Restaruants that meet the requirements will have it noted in their reviews, and will also receive a window sticker and certificate suitable for framing.

The four requirements are:

- Participate in at least one recognized renewable/sustainable energy program (Example: Blue Sky, RECs, NW Nat. Smart Energy, Solar on-site, etc)
- Exclusively use recyclable/compostable "take-out" containers. (Example: cardboard, recyclable foil, etc)
- Compost or recycle appropriate (and legal) kitchen waste
- Use at least some locally produced/grown organic ingredients

Customers and restuarants themselves may request nominations. Please send them to: Chowgeeks reserves the right to request verification prior to presentation of award.
