About Green Dining Alliance
The Green Dining Alliance (GDA) is a restaurant sustainability certification program of St. Louis Earth Day, a 501c3 non-profit organization. The GDA works with restaurants to reduce their environmental impact by completing an on-site audit that evaluates all areas of operations, and setting personalized goals with each Member. We define a “green” restaurant by emphasizing: reducing, recycling, and composting restaurant waste; operating facilities with efficiency; and sourcing sustainable food, to-go ware, and cleaning supplies. The GDA operates throughout the St. Louis region with an emphasis on the City of St. Louis and St. Louis County.
