WHEREAS once red was the colour of romance, now green is all the go in the future of candle-lit dining.
In a marriage of fine food and environmental activism, Coffs Coast restaurants will join in Earth Hour, a campaign to reduce global warming, by turning off the lights for one hour.
On Saturday March 31, selected restaurants and businesses invite you to join them in a candle-lit affair to help reduce carbon emissions, organised locally by the Coffs Climate Action Group.
Coffs Harbour restaurant Caffe Fiasco is joining the campaign by turning off their lights from 7.30 to 8.30 on the night.
"It's a very busy time for us, but climate change is a very serious issue, and every little bit counts. We will be turning off the downlights in the dining area ? that's around 70 lights ? and operate on a mixture of candle light and radiant light from the kitchen," co-owner Mark Hawkins said.
