Food: Dine on Greener Eats
Here are some local greener eateries in the Philadelphia area. I looked for different criteria then just organic food, some of the materials that the building is made of could be green, of course the way the food is raised, the manner in which it's cooked or the materials that you are served on could be green. Every restaurant has to start somewhere, so I included the ones that could be just starting out as well. I have not tested all of them out. If you have eaten at any of these restaurants please post a comment about your experience.
