WANT TO LEARN MORE ABOUT THE ENVIRONMENTAL
IMPACT MADE AT LAST YEAR's FESTIVAL?
2019 Partnership with Everybody Water & Greening Initatives!
Levitate was very excited to be working with Everybody Water this year to completely eliminate plastic water bottle usage onsite and to provide our guests with fully recyclable, eco-friendly packaged water ALL weekend long!
With Everybody Water, we were able to give people a more sustainable way to hydrate themselves, while helping to support Everybody Water as they bring clean water systems to people around the world. Everybody Water is a locally based, female-owned business that funds projects dedicated to helping allow women to earn an income, children to go to school, and families to thrive while eliminating single use plastics.
Additional 2019 Environmental Initiatives
Small steps that make a big difference
Levitate Festival and REVERB teamed up for a third consecutive year to provide free filtered water fill stations to fans!
Through REVERB’s #RockNRefill program, fans again had the opportunity to make a donation to receive a custom Levitate Festival Nalgene bottle to use throughout the weekend. All proceeds benefitted REVERB’s environmental causes!
Our friends at Garbage to Garden were back in action tackling this year’s festival clean-up. Thanks to their help, we were able to continue to divert recyclable and compostable materials aways from the landfill!
GarBAGE TO GARDEN IS A LOCALLY INSPIRED, COMMUNITY DRIVEN COMPANY FOUNDED IN 2012 and BAsed in Portland, ME.
Going full COMPOSTABLE!
In an effort to further improve on our sustainability efforts, We were happy to announce World Centric as the preferred plant-based, compostable foodservice products provider for 2019 the Levitate Music & Arts Festival. Levitate recommended that all vendors and artists use compostable containers and materials onsite this year!
Compostable products are lighter impact alternatives to everyday plastic and Styrofoam disposables. They use less energy to manufacture and cause less pollution to the world around us!
RETURN OF THE STEEL PINT!
Levitate Steel Pints were back, giving fans a refillable option to keep fresh beers cold all weekend!
A typical fan attending live event uses one or more single-serving disposable cup or bottle, generating billions of pieces of plastic waste at venues annually. Through Levitate's steel pint program, we have diverted hundreds of thousands of plastic cups from the landfill since 2017.
The best part?
Fans got to take their pints home, allowing them to continue eliminating plastic waste even after the event is over!
We teamed up with TRIPZERO for the third year in a row, giving fans the option to book environmentally responsible travel throughout the duration of the festival!
Each time that a festival-goer booked lodging through this program, TRIPZERO calculates the carbon footprint created by their trip, then offsets that footprint by funding reforestation and renewable energy projects around the globe.
