Congratulations to Rubio's, Love and Salt, M & Love, Manhattan Beach Brewing Co., Thai Dishes Restaurant, Slay Steak + Fish House, and Two Guns Espresso for becoming Clean Bay Certified! 

In November 2019, Baskin Robbins, Paradise Bowls, and The Corner Bakery were certified and in October 2019, The Belamar Hotel, Jamba Juice, The Coffee Beach, and The Kettle were also certified by the CBC Program!  We look forward to other Manhattan Beach restaurants becoming Clean Bay Certified.

What is the CBC Program? 
The  CBC Program recognizes restaurants that integrate sustainability and ocean-mindedness into their daily operations through waste reduction and proper waste management, responsible cleaning practices, water conservation and employee training.  Restaurants that integrate these types of sustainable practices into restaurant operations make our businesses more attractive to visitors while protecting the health and beauty of one of our most precious resources – The Santa Monica Bay. The City of Manhattan Beach and other South Bay cities implement the CBC program in partnership with the Bay Foundation, a non-profit environmental group founded in 1990 to restore and enhance Santa Monica Bay and local coastal waters.


Restaurants are encouraged to participate in the  Clean Bay Certified Restaurant Program by going above and beyond minimum requirements to help create a healthy, sustainable and resilient Manhattan Beach.  Check out the Clean Bay Certified restaurants in Manhattan Beach and make sure to acknowledge this great accomplishment when you dine at their establishments.


How Does a Restaurant Become Clean Bay Certified? 

Annual inspections of each restaurant in the City are conducted using the Clean Bay Certified Checklist that includes both mandatory legal requirements along with additional items that go above and beyond legal requirements and are intended to demonstrate the restaurant’s commitment to environmental sustainability.  By meeting 100% of the checklist items during this inspection, a restaurant will become Clean Bay Certified!
