Just when you thought this year’s festival season was nearly over, a few festivals with green awareness goals remain. The Project 30-90 Green Art and Music Festival on Saturday, September 5th in New Orleans is one. As they outline on their Green page, they have an eye on many of the key elements required to minimize the environmental impact of a music festival including the challenges with power, trash, transportation and merchandise. Additionally, they have an education goal and are including educational and non-profit organizations in their vendor village. Music festivals have the power to raise awareness and provide music fans with the information they need to live “more green” lives.
From the Project 30-90 site:
Project 30-90 is an environmentally conscious music festival being held in New Orleans on September 5, 2009. Our stages will be run on solar and wind turbine power, we’ll offer paperless green tickets, recycling, carbon offsets and more. Put simply, we are going to rock your world and leave no carbon footprint behind.
