Long Beach Water has launched a new Certified Blue Restaurants Program to recognize local eateries that meet specific water use efficiency standards. The program is designed to help restaurants save water, energy, and money while contributing to Long Beach’s sustainable lifestyle.

Long Beach area restaurants that enroll in the program online receive a free on-site efficiency survey, and, if eligible, free water saving devices. Certified restaurants receive a kit with coasters, window clings, stickers and other items they can use to promote their water efficient status.

Boba Tea House in West Long Beach is the first establishment to be certified under the Certified Blue Restaurants Program. Boba Tea House Owner Alex Tiang said he wanted to show his business was doing its part to “save both water and energy.”

For more information on this program, please contact Kaylee Weatherly at (562) 570-2314.
