Detailed Information:
The Green Restaurant Association (GRA), a 501(c)3 non-profit, is a national environmental organization founded in 1990.  The GRA helps restaurants and its customers become more environmentally sustainable in ways that are convenient and cost-effective.

The GRA researches practical solutions to reduce the environmental impacts of the restaurant industry. We serve as a bridge to connect restaurants with environmentally-preferable products and services. Our research includes communicating with manufacturers, distributors, utilities, government agencies, waste collection companies, and other organizations. From this research, the GRA has created the world’s largest database of environmental solutions for the restaurant industry.

The GRA completes environmental site assessments and provides cost-benefit analyses.  GRA Consultants help member restaurants proceed through the GRA's Environmental Guidelines by working with manufacturers, distributors, utilities, government agencies, and waste collection companies.  The GRA makes it easy to purchase green products and services.  For example, Consultants help to find distributors, clarify product specifications, use incentive programs, and set up recycling programs.  The GRA also produces cost-benefit analyses that demonstrate the economic advantages of being environmentally responsible.

The GRA publishes books and newsletters to educate consumers and restauranteurs about this industry’s environmental impact and solutions. The GRA educates the community through writing articles in mainstream media, producing dinegreen.com, and presenting speeches around the country.
