At The Nodding Donkey Uptown, we’re not only one of Dallas’ best sports restaurants and bars, but we care about the environment too! We only have one Earth, and it’s up to all of us to preserve it. You may not notice on every visit, but we do these a little differently around here in order to reduce our carbon footprint:
· Water: This is one thing you probably WILL notice! When you sit down at a table at The Donkey, don’t expect to see a glass of water automatically arrive at your table. This is not to be mean, but quite the contrary: we’re trying to be nice to Mother Nature by reducing water consumption. If you request water, we’ll absolutely bring it to you! But if you don’t, then we’d rather not let that water go to waste. Just one small way to make an impact.
· Tableware: If you’ve visited The Donkey, then you know our restaurant is known for our kitschy tableware. Every piece is a little different. Not only does that reflect the laid back vibe here, but it’s because each piece was carefully selected and collected from local Dallas, Texas thrift stores! Yep – instead of buying new, we figured, why not recycle!
· Recycling: All cardboard boxes at The Donkey are carefully flattened and recycled, minimizing the amount of waste at the landfill.
· Environmentally-friendly bathrooms: Another way to cut water consumption is to minimize the amount of water used in our restrooms. We’ve installed automatic, low-flow toilet flushers and low-flow faucets to reduce waste.
If you have any other suggestions on how The Nodding Donkey Uptown can “go green” and reduce our carbon footprint, then please let us know! We’d love to hear from you! Because after all, we’re all in this together.
