From fancy and famous to “grab and go” and delivery, Napa Valley offers a broad range of options for enjoying food and drink, and as a world-renowned food and wine destination has become synonymous with setting a higher standard. Napa Climate NOW!’s Waste Reduction Issue Team thinks it’s high time for that standard to be extended to the plate itself and has launched an eye-catching “Earth-Friendly” badge of honor to recognize and promote establishments that commit to more sustainable foodware practices.
Napa Climate NOW! regularly publishes articles about climate science, community resources, climate progress, and opportunities to take action. Read one or read them all.
Napa Climate NOW! is a grassroots, non-partisan group of concerned Napa residents. We advocate a just and socially equitable transition to clean energy, reducing emissions of highly potent climate pollutants, restoring natural climate systems, safeguarding oceans, seas, rivers and other waterways, protecting land and sea ice, and preventing harm due to climate change to the health and well-being of all life on earth.
We are committed to efforts to stabilize the climate by 2030 and ultimately, to restore the climate for the generations yet to come.
The work we do, the education we provide and the information we share are based on the latest climate science.
Napa Climate NOW! is an affiliate of 350 Bay Area.
