On Earth Day, we are reminded to be a little more aware of tossing our pop cans in the recycling bin instead of the trash can, bringing reusable grocery bags to the supermarket instead of brown-bagging it and turning off the lights every time we leave a room, but these are just some of the ways we consumers can “go green” in an effort to save our planet.

With saving money such a high priority on many people’s to-do lists (right next to replacing all of the light bulbs with energy-efficient ones), printing coupons and clipping deals from the Sunday paper has become routine for a lot of us, but there are lots of ways you can save money and paper.

Many stores, newspapers, deal sites and yes, Restaurant.com, now offer savings right on your phone, redeemable by simply showing a cashier or server the deal on your phone’s screen! No printing and no paper waste!

If you have a smart phone, we highly encourage you to download Restaurant.com’s app to help reduce the number of paper certificates used. The app offers:

  • A “Deals Near Me” geolocation feature, which allows you to find nearby restaurants instantly, in addition to being able to search for more than 18,000 restaurants by ZIP code or city.
  • Restaurant menus, descriptions, photos, hours of operation and more.
  • The ability to purchase and redeem Restaurant.com Gift Certificates digitally.
  • Directions to your dining destination mapped out using the phone’s built-in navigation features.
