Green Restaurant Certification Program


The Little Rock Zoo and the City of Little Rock Sustainability Office are proud to partner on the Swing Into Action: Green Restaurant Certification Program (GRCP) Guidelines. It is our hope that the GRCP will be a useful resource to guide sustainability initiatives in your food service operation and that this program can be a catalyst for other green business initiatives. 

Conservation of wild spaces protects the animals we live with and helps grow a better community for us all. The GRCP is just one way the Little Rock Zoo and the City of Little Rock promote sustainability every day.
