Forty four of the 63 restaurants in the City of Malibu were named on the Bay Foundation’s annual Clean Bay Restaurant List, highlighting the community’s strong commitment to protecting the environmental health of Malibu’s beautiful coastline and mountains.

The number of Malibu restaurants that made the list has grown to 70 percent this year, up from 64 percent in 2009, when the city joined the Clean Bay Restaurant Certification Program together with the cities of Santa Monica, Redondo Beach, Manhattan Beach, Hermosa Beach, Torrance, and Rancho Palos Verdes.

“The City of Malibu is extremely proud of our restaurants that made the Clean Bay Restaurant List and thanks and congratulates their owners and staff for their efforts to help protect the environment,” said Malibu Mayor Skylar Peak.

“This terrific program rewards those restaurants by giving them a stamp of approval, and letting customers know which restaurants they can support for being green. The only way we can protect our environment is by the combined efforts of the businesses, community, and government agencies.”

The goal of the Clean Bay Restaurant List is to recognize food-service establishments that are working to prevent pollution from their businesses and protect the water quality of local beaches and creeks.

Criteria include proper labeling of storm drains, preventing polluted discharge to the storm drains, maintaining a recycling program, proper maintenance of grease traps, keeping the property trash-free, keeping trash bins closed and leak-free, not providing customers with polystyrene containers and plastic bags, and keeping staff trained on those guidelines.

The restaurants that meet 100 percent of the criteria are recognized with certificates of appreciation from the city for going above and beyond local storm-water regulations.

The program is an important way to prevent storm-water pollution and urban runoff, which pose a serious threat to the environmental health of the Santa Monica Bay, local water bodies, and the regional watershed, which are a crucial part of the overall ecology of the region. In addition, millions of local residents and visitors enjoy the unique and diverse habitats of the coast and Santa Monica Mountains, which are an important part of the quality of life, culture, and economy of the region.
