Wailin’ Wednesday: How You Helped Folk Fest Become A More Sustainable Festival
It’s Waste Reduction Week and we’d like to share some incredible results from our new composting/recycling/waste station initiative at the 2014 Folk Fest.
Composting increased by an amazing 71% per person
Recycling increased by 36% per person
Landfill waste decreased by 20% per person
These are excellent statistics for our festival, especially for a festival of our size. Thank you for taking the time to visit these stations, talk to the volunteers about composting and scrape your plate in the appropriate bins. We know we can count on our great folk community to adopt new eco-friendly initiatives and you all deserve a huge pat on the back for helping us surpass our 2014 sustainability goals!
