Earth Day is on April 22. To celebrate, the City of Greeley is sponsoring and hosting many activities throughout the month of April that supports the environment and sustainable living.
Mayor’s Challenge for Water Conservation
Please support Greeley in the Mayor’s Challenge for Water Conservation by taking a simple pledge to save water, protect water quality and conserve energy. Go to mywaterpledge.com to take the pledge on behalf of Greeley.
Cities with the highest percentage of residents taking the pledge move higher in their population category. Greeley is in the 30,000 to 99,000 category, because the population categories are based on the 2010 Census. (In 2012, Greeley was one of the winning cities!). Please take a few minutes and helps us reclaim bragging rights and move to 1st Place. Share the pledge on social media and be sure to tell friends and family about it. If Greeley wins, we’ll all have a chance to win prizes.
