Are you always on the run? Does it feel like you never have quite enough time in the day to eat a proper meal? Lack of time is a major reason why many people give up eating right. However, healthy eating is important for promoting good health as well as bringing eco awareness to a green lifestyle.
Consider the drive through drink you bought at lunch. Did you know that each year the average American throws away about 100 polystyrene foam cups, each expected to last over 500 years?
Although sustainable fast food sounds like an oxymoron, Chipotle’s is one of the fast food restaurants recognized for tasty food but also as a leader in building business sustainability. Quizno’s is another fast food choice supporting the environment. When eating on the run, maintain that goal of living green. Look for restaurants that consider the environment:
- Energy / Water Efficiency and Conservation
- Recycling and Composting
- Sustainable Food: local and organic
- Pollution Prevention
- Recycled, Tree-Free, Biodegradable and Organic Products
- Chlorine-Free Paper Products
- Non-Toxic Cleaning and Chemical Products
- Green Power
