Laughing Planet has found this handy resource guide, which teaches our customers how to pronounce one of the many healthy ingredients that can be found on our menu.

What to Do, From One Planet to Another?
Truth is, time is moving quickly. We think it’s February, we just barely kissed Valentine’s Day goodbye, and now we’re looking forward to green beer and leprechauns, if we’re even looking that far ahead. But prepare thyselves. April will be here in no time, and with it will come Earth Day.
Earth Day is a day to look at our planet with fresh ideas about how we might work together in harmony through the upcoming months and years. As a restaurant, and one with the notion of a happy planet bottled up right there in our name, we think deeply about sustainability, and how we might do our part to reduce our carbon footprint, leave less in the landfill, recycle more, and in general, raise our eco-awareness to a level we can all be proud of.
So, we thought we’d start early this year, and put the question to you, our loyal customers. What do you think we should do this year, both for Earth Day 2013, and for greater sustainability throughout all of 2013? We’d love to hear your thoughts, so leave some ideas in the comments section below. We’re already putting together our mission, and look forward to your valuable insight!
