Here's an eco-friendly restaurant in Bangalore worthy of its title. Running on solar power and harvested rainwater, Go Native, offers farm (located within a 500 km radius) to table vegetarian meals alongside active initiatives like nature walks, interactive workshops, and fun events. They even cater to a wide array of food preferences ranging from vegan to gluten-free, Jain-friendly, keto-specific, and low/high protein. You should definitely try their vegan ice cream and whole-wheat pizza.

Undertaking zero-waste practices, check out this unique juice bar in Bengaluru serving natural and refreshing juices in fruit shells. Established by former RJ turned entrepreneur RJ Raja, the place is a haven for environmentalists. Their eco-friendly practices include replacing plastic straws with other alternatives such as paper straws, reusable steel straws, straws made from fallen banana leaves and bamboo, and wheat paste straws.

For some peace, quiet, and environment-conscious good times, head to this zero-waste store-cum-café in DLF Galleria Market. With an objective to reduce plastic consumption and find eco-friendly alternatives, the name-sake (pun intended) offers a delicious selection of locally sourced coffees and various healthy savouries and bakery preparations. This eatery in Gurgaon is also known for its recycled stationery and organic skincare products. For every pencil you buy, there is a free plant seed at the ferrule. So cool!

A recent addition to the list of Insta-worthy cafés in Gurgaon, OMO is also a sustainable eatery with plenty of vegetarian vegan (reducing carbon footprints already) and heart-warming eats on its menu. An abundance of natural sunlight on the patio and chic decor later, you find some of the most decadent beverages (coffee first) and health-conscious food choices in the neighbourhood. Our advice, devour them, one at a time. We chicken-heads tried their cold-pressed juices, Mezze Platter, and pizzas, and they were insane!

SOCIAL has been around long enough to instil the true "nature" of sustainability. One of the best restaurants in Mumbai, it is also the first 100% upcycled restaurant. The tabletops are discarded timber-framed doors, the lights are repurposed, and the food is mind-blowing. Don't leave without trying their famous momos, biryanis, and cocktails.

Plural is a contemporary Southeast Asian restaurant in Mumbai putting forth food-centric sustainability deeds. Starting from sourcing high-quality produce from local farmers, giving patronage to them, reusing discarded vegetables (asparagus, mushroom, etc.) trimmer in vegetable stock, and repurposing citrus fruit peels as cordials for cocktails.
