Here’s How to Mark Earth Day 2021 with a Sustainable Meal in Philly


Every April, people around the globe come together to do their part to promote environmental sustainability. Earth Day, held this year on April 22, is an opportunity to take actions, big or small, that can help increase awareness about eco-friendliness and demonstrate a commitment to living these principles throughout the rest of the year. While large-scale community clean-ups, planting events and educational seminars are mostly sidelined this year out of safety, there are still ways you can show your appreciation for Mother Earth, all without barely leaving your Crane Chinatown apartment.

A great way to honor Earth Day is by patronizing one of the many local eateries that are committed to sustainability. One such spot is FARE, located 1.5 miles from your Crane Chinatown apartment. The artisan kitchen specializes in local and sustainable ingredients—so you can have fresh flavor all while supporting local farmers and growers who rely on green practices.

Start your meal off with one of FARE’s small plates, which give appetizers a sophisticated spin: crispy tuna roll, hand-cut truffle fries and oysters on the half shell, or dive into one of five different salads, brimming with fresh veggies and handcrafted dressing. On the entrée side, sustainably sourced seafood is big on the menu, with everything from scallops to branzino to salmon. Carnivores can also get their fill with flank steak, burgers and more.

FARE is offering both indoor and heated, outdoor dining options, as well as takeout. The restaurant also has a daily happy hour on weekdays featuring a range of bar bites all for under $10 each. Pair your apps with a handcrafted cocktail, or one of many locally produced brews and wines.

This Earth Day, take the time to give back to those working to make our community a cleaner and greener place!
