Here’s a little Earth Day factoid that might just ruin your appetite: Our food system is responsible for about one third of global greenhouse-gas emissions. The good news is you can help combat the problem by sticking with your usual Friday-night routine and dining out. More than 20 restaurants in Australia, Mexico and the United States have agreed to donate $1 for every diner they serve today to Zero Foodprint, a nonprofit started by Lucky Peach editor Chris Ying and San Francisco chef Anthony Myint that works with restaurants and other players in the food system to help reduce their overall environment impact.

Atelier Crenn (San Francisco)
Attica (Melbourne, Australia)
Bar Tartine (San Francisco)
Botanic Gardens Restaurant (Adelaide, Australia)
