Use the Greenease App and Discover Special Dining Values
By Thomas Martin, EdibleDC Contributor
Greenease (available on both the App Store and Google Play) is a new app that aims to make eating "green" (meaning local, sustainable, and diet-specific) easier not just for consumers, but for farmers and chefs as well. EdibleDC is partnering with Greenease to support the use of local food sources in the DC region, which benefits both local farmers by increasing demand as well as customers by encouraging fresher dining options.
In the summer of 2018, Greenease is launching the pilot of the Greenease Business platform where chefs can log in to update their farms, search for farm-fresh food, and push out specials on the app. Farms can soon log in to verify who's buying from them and add their inventory to the database.
The app is also useful for those seeking restaurants with diet-specific options, such as vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free menu items. Greenease will also tell users whether restaurants use sustainable seafood, grass-fed beef, organic ingredients, and free-range and drug-free meats in their menus. Greenease is currently up and running in the District as well as in more than twenty other cities, such as New York, Chicago, and Los Angeles.
For DC restaurant-goers, Edible DC has partnered with Greenease to offer a dinner-for-two deal at Dino's Grotto in Shaw. For just $80, participants will receive:
