“Think Pink”

Every Drop Matters! Serving water upon request helps restaurants conserve not only the water and ice in your glass but also the water and energy used to wash the glassware. Anywhere from 1.5 to 3 gallons of water can be saved for every glass of water not served to a customer in a restaurant.

Earlier this year, the Drought Response Information Project (DRIP), comprised of the City of Grand Junction, Clifton Water District and Ute Water Conservancy District, launched the “Join the Flock” campaign which targeted outdoor water consumption. DRIP continues to handout 100s of pink flamingos at community events throughout the summer. The “Join the Flock” campaign is still going strong as the Grand Valley Community embraces the task of becoming water conservation ambassadors.

The DRIP Committee is beyond excited to introduce the newly launched “Think Pink” element of the “Join the Flock” Campaign. The “Think Pink” Campaign focuses on water and energy efficiencies in the restaurant industry. Participating restaurants will display table tents that simply ask guest to “Think Pink Before You Drink”. The bright flamingo pink table tents encourage restaurants, across the Grand Valley, to serve water upon request. Restaurants are being asked to “Join the Flock” by adopting this water conservation campaign into their daily operations. This campaign is a community effort toward protecting Western Colorado’s most valuable resource.
