Green Restaurants in San Jose

If you’re thinking about eating out, why not choose a green restaurant today in celebration of Earth Day. According to the Bay Area Green Business Program, these local businesses are considered green because they changed their business practices in order to reduce their carbon footprint.  Like Bella Mia, each restaurant on this list is helping to “prevent pollution, minimize waste, and conserve energy, water, and other resources” ( Their choice to become a green restaurant was an active step towards the mitigation of climate change.

Celebrate Earth Day by showing them your support.

    That’s cool! I never knew restaurants could be green. I would be interested in trying one of these. Does it help their business?

      Yeah, especially in this economy when restaurants everywhere are struggling to survive. I’m sure they appreciate your business and the fact that you acknowledge their efforts for being green.
