This time last year, I wrote a piece about the challenges of keeping large community events such as Meadowgrass
as eco-friendly as possible
, with a goal of zero waste.
"What does it mean to be mindful at an event where there's an insane amount of disposable products?" queried co-organizer Nicole Nicoletta of Pikes Peak Community College.
If you're going this weekend
, one new effort you'll see courtesy Whole Foods community relations liaison Barbra Gibb is a free hydration station
. Here's what she says about it:
Just wanted to share our next step in our mission to move away from single-use water bottles. I’ll have a hydration tent in the meadow with these lovely 10 gallon coolers for folks to fill up their water bottles. We’ll be at the Big Dog Brag the first weekend in June, and more outdoor fun fests throughout the summer.
So feel free to bring a water bottle to fill, and click on the first link above to learn more about other efforts to be green in big settings.
