Earth Day is on April 22nd, and there’s no shortage of ways to get involved in sustainable efforts in Rochester and beyond. If you’re considering small ways to reduce your personal footprint, supporting locally-owned vegan eateries is a great place to start!
In addition to serving a vegan menu, many businesses on this list have also built their business on a green foundation. Look out for their compostable take out packaging, bring-your-own container policies, and more. Celebrate Earth Day with us and try a new-to-you vegan dish at one of these businesses this month!
