Carbon Neutral Activities & Wellbeing in our Cities – London Eco Dining
Rising to the challenge of reducing food-based emissions, London’s new assembly of eco restaurants are protecting the planet with a focus on sustainable recipes, carbon reduced supply chains, zero plastic and more – here are a few nearby options for you to plan dinner around.
Somerset House, Lancaster Place, WC2R 1LA
Spring restaurant, based out of centrally located Somerset House, boasts an ever-changing menu that makes use of seasonal, locally sourced produce. They were also the first ever single-use plastic free restaurant in London.
1 Floral Court, WC2E 9FB
La Goccia are specialists in Italian aperitivo with a focus on sustainable produce – their poultry, livestock, eggs, vegetables and fruit actually come directly from the organic, high-welfare Haye Farm, in Devon. They also source their line-caught fish directly from Cornish fishermen, rather than corporate trawlers.
Native At Browns
39 Brook Street, London, W1k 4JE
Native are not only an award-winning purveyor of British cuisine, they also feature an adaptable ‘wild food’ menu that focuses on key seasonal ingredients, ethically sourced meat and ‘foraged cocktails’. Proof that, if you want to go green, you have to get grubby.
Is it possible to practise sustainability in a city of over 9 million? According to the mayor’s ‘1.5-degree compatible plan’, the answer is ‘yes’ – with a heavy focus on eco building, public parks and zero-emissions mass public transportation.
London is going green, and guests of ByMansley, in both the Mayfair or Kensington properties, will find no shortage of natural spaces, sustainable travel options or eco-minded restaurants to help them reduce carbon footprint and stay healthy in the process.
