Delmar Loop Designated as a Green Dining District

GDA certificationOur neighborhood is not only one of the coolest in the country, but also officially a Green Dining District! To be given this designation, 25% of a neighborhood’s locally owned restaurants must be Green Dining Alliance certified. This means they:

  • Recycle
  • Refuse to use styrofoam containers
  • Phase in energy-efficient lighting and equipment
  • Conserve water through smart strategies
  • Purchase local goods whenever possible

Among the Green Dining Alliance certified businesses in The Loop are Blueberry Hill, Peacock Loop Diner, our very own Eclipse Restaurant and many more.

In addition to the Green Dining Alliance certified restaurants in the neighborhood, The Loop is in the process of installing LED lighting in its street lamps and has placed 45 recycling containers throughout the area!

The Moonrise Hotel is so proud to be part of a community that shares our dedication to sustainability!
