1% FOR CLIMATE CHANGE

SAN FRANCISCO– If you’re dining out in San Francisco, there might be a new surcharge added to your bill starting this month.

The optional 1% surcharge will fund a new program called Restore California, managed by the nonprofit Zero Footprint.

That money will provide funding for farmers to build healthy soil as well as “carbon farming projects such as compost application, cover crop planting, tree planting, and improved grazing management,” according to a statement.

Zero Footprint claims if 1% of California restaurants add the 1% surcharge, the program would generate $10 million in just a year of implementation.

The Golden Gate Restaurant Association is one of the first to implement the new surcharge, adding it to the menu of its restaurants participating in San Francisco Restaurant Week, Mother Jones reports.

For example, a $40 prix fixe will increase to a total cost of $40.40.

Every restaurant in California is invited to participate in Restore California.

Would you mind a 1% climate change surcharge?

  1. The ” Tax and Squander ” mentality isn’t limited to London Breed and Pelosi, the restaurant organization is obviously in concert with the pols.
    May I suggest eating outside the city and county of San Francisco, CA.

      Another way to chase people away from the poop on the streets in this once tourist town.
      On the bright side amid the poop and needles all over the place, you will not see one straw!
