With a small grant from the City of Ottawa under Sustainability, GentleWays is currently implementing a project aiming at promoting sustainable plant-based food choices in Ottawa. We will be supporting and  collaborating with some restaurants towards an increase in the availability and appeal of plant-based options on their menus.

We understand that people’s food choices are influenced by what’s offered to them; with this project we aim to make sustainable choices more accessible and attractive to people in Ottawa.  Healthy plant-based diets are less polluting, require less water and have gentler impact on the environment. Consumers can make a difference with what we eat and restaurants can help us make those choices.  When restaurants offer attractive and healthy plant-based options, individuals may feel more inspired and enabled to reduce their carbon footprint.
