In 2018, Matt was vacationing in Costa Rica and had an a-ha moment-- all of the restaurants served delicious food and cocktails made with local ingredients and a side of environmental responsibility (think farm to table with no single-use plastic).
With climate change on the rise and our oceans overflowing with plastic-- he knew this commitment to sustainability needed to be amplified to restaurant-goers everywhere! At the end of the day, who doesn’t love a great meal and helping the environment at the same time??
When he returned home he connected with Evan, Cofounder + CTO, and together did some research-- after hundreds of interviews, countless online searches, and dozens of restaurant visits, they discovered that people love sustainable restaurants but finding them was no easy task! And voilà, Ribbit was born!
