GET HERE GREEN + RIDESHARE
Why it matters: Transportation to and from the festival is the main source of carbon emissions for the event.
What you can do: Take the low-emission route to and from the festival. Carpool, bike, walk, or take public transportation.
Why it matters: Nearly a million plastic beverage bottles are sold every minute. Worldwide, over 500 billion plastic bottles are used every year.
What you can do: Go refillable! Carry your own reusable bottle, pick up a reusable commemorative festival cup, or pack your own utensils that you can use and reuse.
ROCK & RECYCLE
Why it matters: Every year, 9 Million tons of plastic waste ends up in the ocean, a trillion plastic bags are used worldwide, and 500 million plastic straws are used a day.
What you can do:
- Use provided trash and recycling bins and get rewarded for going above and beyond through the festival’s Rock & Recycle Program, where you can earn a commemorative festival T-shirt and a chance to win more!
- Stop sucking! Server’s will only provide (plastic alternative) straws by request.
- Pitch in and join us at our beach clean-up before the festival, where you can earn a Sea Hear Now reusable bag that will help you breeze through festival security.
SUPPORT SUSTAINABLE BUSINESS
Why it matters: Fair trade, local, organic, and vegetable-focused items are the least environmentally damaging. Aluminum cans are more efficient to recycle than plastic bottles. Once the aluminum has been produced, it can be recycled repeatedly.
What you can do: Seek out plant based, organic, locally sourced meal options at the festival from our list of vendors, and alternatives to plastic when consuming beverages.
