Local 16 Is Committed To Green

I’ve always liked Local 16 located on U Street just west of 16th Street. I believe they have one of the best roof decks in the city and this only adds to the allure. The sign says they are happy to share their herb garden. Nice. It also says they use “vegetables from a biodynamic farm whenever possible.” So I guess I’m wondering what exactly makes a restaurant green? Is using vegetables from a biodynamic farm as well as herbs from an herb garden enough to proclaim oneself green? I do think it’s cool that they share the herbs with their neighbors, I’m just curious about the new trend of folks calling themselves “green”.

What is the true definition of a green establishment?
