Every time more and more people are interested about environmental protection and, even when it could have been originated as part of a trend, nobody can deny the climate changes that have affected different parts of the world, as a result of the poor management of natural resources. Therefore, the need we have to do something about it, has definitely increased.
It’s due to this urgency that initiatives as the sustainable restaurants are born. Initiatives that take into account different factors of economic and environmental nature, as waste policies, collaboration with community suppliers and the ecological print. All of this, with the ultimate goal of using foods and resources which respect the environment in every sense.
We share with you a list of 5 sustainable restaurants that you can’t miss the next time you visit one of these cities:
A cevicheria (sea food restaurant) located in the city of Paracas that has as concept “Km 0 – The freshest fish for bringing the best of the sea to your table”, which means that supplies come from a radius less than 100 km. Chalana offers cold dishes that require no electricity or fuel in its preparation, and uses fishermen and farmer’s ingredients. Clearly, an environmental responsibility that also involves the social sphere.
