greenUP!, has received a $12,898 grant from the Nevada Division of Environmental Protection (NDEP) Bureau of Sustainable Materials Management 2020 Recycling Grant Program. The grant is designed to increase recycling, public awareness of the importance of conserving natural resources, and encourage the reduction, reuse and recycling of solid waste in Nevada. greenUP! will use the proceeds to continue the Carson Street Green Dining District pilot that was funded by NDEP in 2019.
To celebrate, greenUP! is promoting the green dining district by flying a banner that will span Carson Street in the heart of the green dining district between W. Spear and Telegraph Streets from January 20th to February 2nd. For the first week of the promotion, Green Dining District Restaurants will honor a $1 discount for those that bring their Nevada Day stainless steel commemorative mugs towards either a 16-oz beverage or towards the cost of a meal (deal varies). On the second week of the promo, individual restaurants will be featured on the Green Dining District social media pages and will have a signature drink or special menu item celebrating sustainability. (Note, these items will not be discounted).
Participating restaurants include Arby’s, Artisan Café, Battle Born Social, Flavors of India, Gather, Scoups Ice Cream and Soup Bar, So Juicy and Squeeze In. To see more details about the banner promotion, please visit the greenUP! website at https://greenupnow.biz or check the greenUP! Facebook page daily to see what’s on special for that day.
