Grubhub is committed to driving sustainability across the restaurant industry this Earth Month and every month.
Throughout April, all donations from Grubhub’s Donate the Change program will benefit the Green Restaurant Association, a nonprofit organization that helps restaurants become more environmentally sustainable. The GRA will provide subsidized support to small- and medium-sized restaurants looking to implement sustainable practices, such as packaging, waste reduction, composting, water efficiency and more. The GRA will also work with restaurants in the Grubhub Restaurant Network to pass the GRA’s assessment and become Certified Green Restaurants®.
Additionally, In honor of Earth Day, we’re shining a light on restaurant owners who put sustainability at the forefront of their business. From reducing waste to making delicious plant-based dishes, see how Lighthouse, Honeybee Burger, Fish. and Cayenne push environmental sustainability forward in the restaurant industry.
Grubhub also joined the #CutOutCutlery campaign to help reduce the number of single-use plastics that enter the environment. In the coming months the Grubhub app and website will begin automatically defaulting to select zero utensils and napkins with every order. Learn more at habitsofwaste.org.
At Grubhub, we understand that we all have a responsibility to protect our planet, and every little decision and action we take can make a difference. This Earth Day, our hope is that Grubhub’s partnership with the Green Restaurant Association will help make sustainability in food more accessible for both our diners and restaurant partners.
