Plastic pollution is a problem,
and restaurants can be a
big part of the solution!

We would like to recognize restaurants that meet our criteria. And we can offer some resources and motivation to get you there.

We believe that the money restaurants save by choosing to distribute less plastic will more than offset any potential increased cost in compostable or reusable alternatives. Please contact us for more information.

What We Can Offer

Let us publicize your restaurant or food establishment!

Via our web and email platforms, 350 Fairfax will reach out to eco-conscious consumers in Fairfax County to let them know about restaurants working to reduce their impact on the earth.

We’ll also post on Twitter and Facebook with the hashtag #EarthFriendlyFairfax.

Consider us your gateway to a previously untapped dining market.

Once we have a critical mass of restaurants on board, we’ll also write and send press releases to local media outlets advertising the campaign and the certified restaurants.

We have beautiful, eye-catching window clings for certified restaurants to post out front.

How We Can Help

Not sure how to begin the transition to sustainability? We’ve got you covered.

DC-based nonprofit Our Last Straw—led by Dan Simons, owner of Farmers Restaurant Group—has done the research on eco-friendly alternatives to single-use plastic restaurant supplies and wants to share the knowledge. Contact Our Last Straw here or contact Dan directly on Twitter.

Or contact a supplier directly. Acme Paper offers a FREE Green Product Analysis that will show you how you might transition away from single-use plastics while keeping extra costs at a minimum. Learn more here.
