Clean Bay Restaurant Certification Program

Using Environmentally Beneficial Solutions to Reduce Ocean Pollution

Restaurants produce large amounts of waste which when handled improperly, can enter our storm drain system and ultimately pollute our rivers and ocean. Each year, 30 billion gallons of stormwater and urban runoff are discharged into the Santa Monica Bay, a large portion of which comes from restaurants. While many restaurants consistently implement clean practices, many do not. The Clean Restaurant Program plays an important role in reducing ocean pollution by educating restaurants on clean restaurant practices including: proper disposal of wastes, keeping facilities clean, preventing spills, training their employees, and making other environmentally responsible choices.

The program is simple! Just look for restaurants displaying the Clean Bay Restaurant certificate in their window. Clean certified restaurants have passed their inspection with 100% compliance!
