Commissioner Eileen Higgins to launch Greener Coral Way, a voluntary sustainability certification program, with recognition ceremonies for founding members
MIAMI-DADE – Miami-Dade County Commissioner Eileen Higgins, District 5, in partnership with The CLEO Institute, will host Greener Coral Way Recognition Ceremonies for the founding members of the Greener Coral Way program on Thursday, February 27. from 3:45 to 5:45 p.m.
Greener Coral Way is a community initiative developed by Commissioner Higgins, in partnership with The CLEO Institute, to certify Coral Way restaurants that have voluntarily taken steps towards sustainability and resilience. District 5 and The CLEO Institute are encouraging local restaurants to remove or replace Styrofoam and single-use plastic and address food waste in their operations. Commissioner Higgins hopes the program will increase the visibility and customer loyalty of these restaurants by recognizing them as environmental stewards of the neighborhood.
Greener Coral Way’s six founding members are Doggi’s Arepa Bar, Café Croissant, Dale Arepa Bar & Healthy Bistro, Oh My Gosh Brigadeiros, The Mighty, and Ponte Vecchio. Commissioner Higgins will begin at Doggi’s and then walk to each of these restaurants to officially certify their business and recognize them for their sustainability efforts.
“Coral Way is one of the most beautiful, vibrant parts of the County,” said Commissioner Higgins. “It is the beating heart of the area. This program demonstrates our commitment to the Coral Way neighborhoods by helping our local mom and pop businesses thrive while taking steps that protect our environment.”
