One way to a more sustainable world is through making better food choices – choices that support humane and sustainable agriculture. That can happen through choosing to go meat-free one day a week, or going vegetarian or vegan all the time. However, just because you make those choices at home doesn’t mean that they’re easy to do so when eating out at restaurants. But a forthcoming smartphone app may make it much simpler to eat sustainably when dining out.
The Humane Eating Project, which is currently raising money through an Indiegogo campaign, aims to put a helpful tool for more sustainable and humane dining in the palm of your hand.
“You want to eat humanely, but you don’t know where to start.
We’re making Humane Eating easy. Humane Eating is simply eating humanely-raised, vegan, or vegetarian food.
Until now, it hasn’t been easy to find humane restaurants.
And it hasn’t been easy to avoid those selling the most inhumane foods.”
The new Humane Eating Project app includes a restaurant locator, with thousands of restaurants listed (plus maps and directions), as well as a Watch List that highlights the restaurants that “serve the worst of the worst of inhumane foods” so you can avoid them. The app also has a filtering option to show which restaurants have a vegan menu, or vegetarian options, as well as those that serve humanely raised meats.
The app won’t be available until the spring of 2014 at the earliest, but until then, The Humane Eating Project has some tips to eat more humanely: 5 Simple Ways to Eat More Humanely, Without Changing Your Lifestyle
