Want to discover the food scene in Helsinki but at the same time be a conscious consumer? Well sustainability is taken very seriously in the Finnish capital. Here you can find plenty of restaurants that will cater to your needs.

One of the most important parts of any city is its food. Not only is food a necessity, but our taste buds are one of the privileges we have as humans. So, if you truly want to discover the character of Helsinki treat yourself to the bustling food scene that the city has laid out for all to enjoy. The choices in the city are abundant, and many establishments pay particular attention to all things sustainable.

The most central viewpoint in terms of restaurants is what's on the plate. The more vegetarian food we eat, the better this is for the climate. Another major topic is food waste.

Here's a selection of restaurants that have met the Think Sustainably criteria. When browsing MyHelsinki.fi, you'll always spot sustainable choices by their green tab. 

Think Sustainably - what's that?

The Think Sustainably service helps everyone to choose more responsible ways of living in Helsinki, as well as enjoy the city on a sustainable holiday. It filters content from the MyHelsinki.fi website to suggest sustainable services, such as restaurants, shops, sights, events and accommodation. At the base of the service are tailor-made criteria for the city of Helsinki that have been developed together with the independent think tank Demos Helsinki, along with local interest groups and sustainability experts. The service is one example of Helsinki's commitment to promoting a more sustainable way of life - for everyone.
