Lower Your City's Climate Impact

Bringing the Plant Based for the Planet initiative to your community fosters a city-wide shift for a greener future.

How it works

Plant Based for the Planet is a one-month city-wide sustainability initiative created and managed by Planted Society.

During each city challenge, we partner with local restaurants who feature new plant-based specials which remain on their menu for the period of the promotion.

At the end of the month, we analyze the combined climate impact of the plant-based dishes served, showing the community what a difference we can make when we act together. 

To encourage the community to participate, we offer opportunities to win prizes from sustainable local partners in return for rating and reviewing!



Why We Do it

At its core, Plant Based for the Planet strives to illuminate the important role that our food choices play in addressing climate change. By choosing plant-based dishes, we can reduce our climate impact, contributing to a more sustainable world. With each plant-based meal, we take a step closer to a greener future.

We work with locally-owned small businesses during our initiatives because we believe each of our city challenges should benefit the people who live there – that includes small business owners and all citizens in the community. 

To date, we have helped add hundreds of climate-friendly plant-based dishes to restaurant menus around the U.S. and our initiatives have helped cities all over the country curb their climate impact in meaningful, lasting ways.
