ABOUT PROJECT GREEN FORK

Our Mission

Project Green Fork contributes to a more sustainable mid-south by helping reduce environmental impacts with a focus on strengthening homegrown restaurants.

 

Our History

Project Green Fork was founded in 2008 by Margot McNeely out of concern about the amount of waste generated by restaurants, a desire to contribute to the sustainability of our community, and a passion for supporting local businesses. In 2016, Project Green Fork merged with Clean Memphis to advance the mission to make Memphis a cleaner, greener, and more environmentally sustainable city. National studies indicate that approximately one and one-half pounds of trash are produced for each restaurant meal that is served, and the average restaurant produces 50,000 pounds of garbage per year. Typically, close to 95% of this waste can be recycled or composted. Project Green Fork helps local businesses in the service industry operate more sustainably. Frequenting PGF certified establishments, supports local businesses and promotes environmental sustainability.
