Montclair, NJ – This March, twelve of your favorite Montclair restaurants are celebrating plant based menu options. Humane Montclair, partnering with Planted Societies and Montclair Department of Sustainability, is launching PLANT BASED FOR THE PLANET – a community dining initiative in Montclair taking place throughout the month of March. Participating local chefs have created at least two new dishes to their menu, demonstrating that meals without meat can be delicious and inspired – as well as way to let diners help individually mitigate climate change.

The 12 Montclair restaurants featuring climate-friendly fare in March are:

Marcel Bakery
Tino’s Artisan Pizza
Coffee & Cornbread
Basil Indian & Thai Grill
Le Salbuen
Egan & Sons
Toast City Diner
Laboratorio Kitchen
World Flats

The Plant Based for the Planet community dining initiative in Montclair is a challenge for chefs and diners alike, that brings attention to plant based eating and how it can impact our planet. Eating a plant rich diet is the fourth most impactful (and probably the most accessible) climate-change reversing solution, having an impact on lowering water usage, pollution, and our collective carbon footprint.

During March, diners are encouraged to eat often at these Plant Based for the Planet partners and will have a chance to vote for their favorite dishes. Share your favorite climate-friendly meals on social – tag #Montclairplanetchallenge, @plantedsociety, @humanemontclair on Instagram and be entered for prizes, awarded at the end of the challenge. Diners will also vote for their favorite restaurant.
