5 ways to go greener as a family in Chicago this spring


Eat green with your kids

Eating organic can have a major impact on your carbon footprint (even more than driving) and a major impact on your child's health. Eat local, organic and delicious food and have a family-friendly night out at Uncommon Ground, where the organic rooftop garden, left, provides food for the restaurant (1401 W. Devon Ave., Chicago). Friday nights 6-8 p.m. are free Honky Tonk Happy Hours where kids can dance while you eat. In the summer, the fun moves outside with Farmer Fridays. Other child-friendly green restaurants include Heartland Cafe (7000 N. Glenwood Ave., Chicago); Blind Faith Cafe (525 Dempster St., Evanston); Bleeding Heart Bakery (1955 W. Belmont Ave., Chicago); and new on the scene, City Provisions Delicatessen (1820 W. Wilson Ave., Chicago).
