A growing number of music festivals around the world are taking direct action to reduce waste and their carbon footprint. Levitate Music and Arts Festival 2019 just released their environmental impact report in partnership with World Centric, highlighting five core goals:
1. Increase waste diversion
2. Reduce single-use plastic
3. Increase compostable access
4. Offset carbon footprint
5. Support Eco-Driven products
The festival used all plant-based compostable foodservice products, steel pint cups and water stations, and had a greening crew sorting through recyclables, trash, and compost all weekend long.
What started in 2013 as a ten year anniversary party for the Levitate Surf Shop has grown into New England’s premiere grassroots festival. Now in its 7th year, the 2019 event featured Rootfire artists Steel Pulse and The Elovaters alongside Damian Marley, Stick Figure, Tedeschi Trucks Band, Nathaniel Raetliff & The Night Sweats, Joe Russo’s Almost Dead, Iya Terra and more.
With great power comes great responsibility and we’re thrilled to see Levitate using their influence to build a sustainable event we can all enjoy. Check out the full Environmental Impact Report below…
