It takes a little bit of creativity and a dedicated effort for eco-friendly restaurants to run, but as a result, locally-sourced food, unique ways to produce energy and sustainable architecture all become other features to draw in new customers.
It can be pretty disappointing to walk past a restaurant on garbage day and see multiple bags and cans full of trash that you know will end up sitting in a landfill somewhere, but there are eateries devoted to reducing their footprints on the world by looking to low-energy and low-waste solutions, like Original Unpacked that sells food without wasteful packaging, or Chicago's Sandwich Me, which only produced about a household garbage bag worth of waste over the span of two years.
