October 12 is Dine Out for the Environment, Clean Air Council’s annual autumn celebration of sustainable dining in the Philadelphia area! This year’s Dine Out for the Environment welcomes two new restaurants and three new sponsors to the Clean Air Council family. Please say hello to our newest friends in the fight for a healthier region.
The Energy Co-op – Partnering for their second consecutive Clean Air Council event after sponsoring our solar panels at Greenfest 2017, The Energy Co-op is the region’s only non-profit, member-owned energy supplier. By being a cooperative member and simply paying your energy bill, you can be sure that you are making a lasting impact. Don’t just choose your energy company; own it.
Girard on Girard – Serving up breakfast, lunch and afternoon snack offerings in Fishtown from 8a-4p, this BYOB bruncherie has all the vegan and vegetarian options one could want, as well as creative poultry dishes. Stop by after two for a special appetizer happy hour!
Natural Awakenings Magazine – Natural Awakenings Magazine is Philadelphia’s guide to a healthier, more balanced life, providing insights and information to improve our quality of life physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. You can find Natural Awakenings Magazine in local health food stores, fitness centers, bookstores, health care facilities, libraries and the restaurants participating in Dine Out for the Environment.
The Greyhound Cafe – The owners and chefs at The Greyhound Cafe believe eating plant-based food should be more of a celebration, rather than a sacrifice. They celebrate this belief by reinterpreting Italian, Mexican, and brunch inspired dining – and everything is 100 plant-based. Nestled in Malvern, this vegetarian’s dream is also BYOB!
Grid Magazine – Grid Magazine reflects the best of the Philadelphia region: our social entrepreneurs, food innovators and wellness advocates; our makers and doers, artists and activists. Grid’s politics are informed by social, racial, economic and environmental justice, and eager readers can find free copies throughout the region or sign up for a subscription.

On August 30, 1967, the Delaware Valley Citizens’ Council for Clean Air was founded. While our name has changed to Clean Air Council and the organization has grown considerably from its humble beginnings, the Council’s mission remains steadfast: “Protecting everyone’s right to breathe clean air.” Now more-than-ever is the time to become a Council member and contribute to a lasting legacy that protects our fundamental right to clean air and a healthy environment.
Clean Air Council invites you to join us as we take a look back at major victories and milestones. Each week, from now until our November 9th celebration, the Council will highlight its environmental accomplishments, as well as explore the role Executive Director and Chief Counsel Joseph Minott has taken in shaping the Council over the past 35 years. Stay tuned!
