Class Description: Wednesday, May 3 from 3 to 5 p.m.

Join us on a walking tour of St. Louis’ own unique Green Dining Districts. Jenn Derose, Green Dining Alliance Program Manager, will lead participants during this exciting opportunity to learn how a local program is helping make a big difference in the St. Louis restaurant scene.

The Green Dining Alliance District, a program of St. Louis Earth Day, is a sustainability certification program for restaurants. Restaurants certified by the GDA recycle, work to reduce their energy and water use, and never use styrofoam. The GDA has two Green Dining Districts, where 25% of the independent restaurants have made commitments to reduce their environmental footprint—and this is your chance to learn more!

Join the Green Dining Alliance and the Loop Special Business District on a walking tour of the second Green Dining District in St. Louis. The Delmar Loop was named one of the 10 great streets in America—and this is your opportunity to find out why!

The tour will begin at Fitz’s and end at the Moonrise Hotel. Attendees will stop and talk to business owners, taste food, admire the walk of fame, and learn about the greening efforts of the business district beyond the GDA. From LEED-certified diners to a rotating moon powered by the sun, the Delmar Loop has it all!

The tour will end under the solar-panel patio on top of the Moonrise Hotel, where attendees can admire the view of this Green Dining District. Designed for adults only.
