BOSTON—The Green Restaurant Assn. and Chefs Collaborative have formed a partnership. Since 1990, the Green Restaurant Assn. has been helping the restaurant industry work through the association’s 11 environmental guidelines. Since 1993, Chefs Collaborative has been educating chefs and consumers about sustainable cuisine.
On November 13, Chefs Collaborative chairman Eric Stenberg will announce the partnership to a room full of America’s top chefs and supporting diners. Michael Oshman, Green Restaurant Assn. executive director, will give a presentation on the restaurant/environment connection.
Oshman will also announce that the host hotel, Langham Hotel Boston, is about to become America’s newest Certified Green Restaurant. A brief presentation on the Langham’s environmental accomplishments will be made at the November 13 event.
“I am excited that the Green Restaurant Assn. and Chefs Collaborative will be working together,” Oshman says. “We’ll do events together, be presented in each other’s newsletters, provide mutual membership discounts, and more.”
“Chefs Collaborative and the Green Restaurant Assn. create incredible synergy in providing tools for restaurants to continue their commitment to sustainability,” says Jennifer Hall, Chefs Collaborative executive director. “Combining the Collaborative’s expertise with food and the Green Restaurant Assn.’s support of a greener operation, the full spectrum of possibilities is now available to our collective network.”
