In efforts to put on a sustainable festival conscious of its environmental impact, JazzReggae will offer free water refilling stations with Event Water solutions. Event Water partners with festivals and large events all over the US and Canada to provide guests with free, unlimited, filtered drinking water. Bringing water refilling stations to JazzReggae was a crucial step in supplementing our sustainability efforts. Last year, we were able to dramatically divert our plastic bottle waste by providing attendees with more than 4,000 water refills over the course of the two-day festival. This year, we aim to raise this count and promote awareness of sustainable living practices. Keep an eye out for two snazzy water refilling stations on the festival grounds. If you forget to bring your own reusable water bottle, custom JazzReggae bottles will be sold at our merchandise tent!
JazzReggae food vendors contribute to the festival’s sustainable efforts by working towards a zero-waste goal. Our sustainability team works to ensure that food vendors avoid plastic bottles and sauce packets, and use recyclable and compostable cutlery, plates, and cups. Waste, recycling, and composting bins will be located throughout the festival grounds to ensure a minimal waste footprint. JazzReggae is also partnering with Biotane Fuels to pick up leftover cooking oil to convert to biodiesel.
Global Inheritance is a unique nonprofit organization that is involved with hundreds of events around the country, using creative, cause-based projects to convey the importance of sustainability and social action.
Global Inheritance’s Energy Playground will return to JazzReggae with an entertaining and active addition to the festival experience. Join the sustainable movement by generating energy on a seesaw, swing set, or human hamster wheel that convert motion into 12-volt energy used to power a snow cone machine. Participants will be able to enjoy a refreshing snow cone after powering up the machine. The Energy Playground not only provides a fun experience for all ages, but also promotes the use of alternative energy sources.
