COMPOST, TRASH & RECYCLING PROGRAMS
EcoAction partners with festivals and events to reduce landfill waste and utilize the opportunity to engage attendees and vendors in continuing waste reduction efforts at their home or business.
HOW IT WORKS
EcoAction Partners has worked with many festivals, events and organizations in our region to help them reduce and divert waste. Efforts involve working with event management to ensure sourcing local and organic food vendors, use of compostable and recyclable products, educating festival staff and attendees, training and managing volunteers for Compost, Recycling and Trash (CRT) stations.
EcoAction Partners began working with local festivals in 2010 to require 100% composting of all organic waste. Telluride Bluegrass Festival, which brings approximately 15,000 visitors annually from around the world, is now a ‘Zero Waste Event’. Through our partnership, Planet Bluegrass (the event organizer) has become a leader in festival composting and the educational impact has been enormous. Telluride MountainFilm is also a Zero Waste Event, reaching and educating international visitors as well as locals. EcoAction manages CRT for Mountainfilm and the annual Telluride July 4th Fireman’s picnic which draws approximately 12,000 people to the region each year.
