We believe that every day should be Earth Day. That is why this week, we are shining the light on people and organizations that are helping to save our earth all year round. Today we recognize Clean Vibes, a leader in responsible waste management.
Clean Vibes is a company that was formed to actively encourage and promote recycling, composting and proper waste disposal at outdoor festivals and events. Clean Vibes hopes to educate and inspire a new generation of responsible stewards.
“Our goal is to divert waste from landfills by increasing the amount of material that is recycled and composted, thereby greatly reducing the ecological footprint of outdoor festivals and events.” – Clean Vibes
Clean Vibes manages to educate and raise awareness about recycling, composting, and waste management by providing incentives to festival goers to clean up and recycle. Through their efforts, Clean Vibes has managed to divert over one million cigarette butts from landfills since 2013, and nearly three million cans and bottles since 2008.
“We show concertgoers how easy it is to minimize one’s waste footprint through recycling and composting in hopes that they might take this knowledge and apply it to their daily lives.” – Clean Vibes
Clean Vibes also works with event coordinators and organizations to help define and work towards greener goals. The work they do together has a significant environmental impact and in some cases, Clean Vibes’ efforts have left a venue cleaner than before they got there.
This year Clean Vibes will be spreading waste management awareness at the following music festivals: Bonnaroo, Firefly, Forecastle, and Outside Lands. To learn more about how Clean Vibes is helping to save our planet, visit www.cleanvibes.com or www.cleanvibestradingpost.org.
