Category: Green Initiatives
We are now living in a time where the environment and climate are suffering because of human ignorance. As an organization that promotes peace, love and true reggae music, let’s love and be in
peace with nature. We can do our part to protect it by keeping our festival clean! Reggae Festival is proud to launch our green initiative this year with hopes to divert waste entering our landfills. Our goal
this year is to divert at least 50% of our waste going to the landfill.
Green Educator & Green Crew
Are you concerned with the current state of our environment? Do you want to be part of a team that makes a difference? Join our Green team this year! Your main responsibilities would include educating the general public about properly disposing their waste, recyclables, and compostable material at our waste stations that have been provided by the city. You can also volunteer with our green crew, keeping our green space free of litter.
Compostable plates, beer cups & cutlery
This year, we are going Styrofoam free and doing our best to educate our vendors about reducing the amount of waste they produce during our festival. Our vendors will be informed about the benefits and importance of using compostable plates and cutlery. In addition, all of our beer cups (provided by Village Brewery) are compostable.
Volunteer and be a part of our Green Team!
Waste stations – Reduce, reuse, & recycle!
Watch out for our waste stations around the park. All of our stations will provide signage as to where you should be disposing your items. Along with signage, there will be onsite green educators ensuring that everything going into our bins is correct.
We can’t do it alone. Here’s how you can help.
Reggae Fest provides on-site bike racks as a means of promoting alternative transportation methods and reducing our carbon footprint. We are easily accessible by train (right next to 10th street station at Shaw Millennium Park), and encourage patrons to bike, car-pool or walk if possible.
