Australian chain Otarian bills itself as “the first ever low-carbon restaurant, using a cradle-to-grave analysis in the carbon footprinting of every menu item.” Almost everything in Otarian’s restaurants—from the floor to the tables and chairs—is made from recycled materials. Its “Eco2tarian Labelling” shows the difference in greenhouse gas emissions between its veggie meals and similar dishes containing meat, fish or egg. Otarian has restaurants in New York and London.
Otarian rewards consumers for the carbon they save with every purchase earning “Carbon Karma” credits, which are tracked by the restaurant’s Carbon Karma cards. Nice.
