Fountain Bluesfest recognizes the impact that large events can have on the environment. We have partner with Nothing Wasted Consulting and the City of San Jose Environmental Services . With the assistance of the City’s green event grant Bluesfest 2013 goal is to divert 50% of its waste from ending up as landfill. Through this partnership, we will add sustainable waste management best practices into the event.
It only works with your help, so be on the lookout for the containers located throughout the event then all you have to do is place:
any food scraps, paper food ware (such as plates, bowls, cups, http://www.italianfamilyfestasj.org/home/going-green/ napkins), and utensils into the green “compostable” container
any plastic bottles, plastic containers, aluminum cans, and aluminum foil into the blue “recyclables” containers.

With your help, we can make the 2013 Bluesfest clean and green!
