SunFest makes a serious commitment to the conservation of Palm Beach County’s environment. Through the “SunFest Goes Green Behind the Scenes” environmental program, SunFest incorporates the environment into our event operations. See how SunFest and the Solid Waste Authority of Palm Beach County work together to Recycle Right at SunFest. Check out our short video.
SunFest makes every effort to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and our carbon footprint through the promotion of alternative transportation such as bike valets, group shuttles and pre-paid parking incentives for carpooling.
On the administrative side, SunFest will recruit, schedule and correspond with all volunteers virtually to limit paper use. The entertainment application process is conducted virtually also to eliminate the submission of paper applications.
SunFest is a proud partner of the BYOBottle Campaign, a music industry effort to reduce plastic waste by promoting reusable water bottles and water refill stations at SunFest. SunFest fans are permitted to bring their own, EMPTY refillable water bottle and water refill stations will be provided.
SunFest rents all equipment on the event site each year, which includes tables, tents, chairs, flooring, and garbage receptacles to promote reuse.
Through SunFest’s efforts, over 500,000 pounds of materials have been recycled during the event. This material consists of corrugated cardboard, plastic and glass.
We go Green Behind the Scenes thanks to our partners at Solid Waste Authority of Palm Beach County.
Thank you to Tellus Products for providing resourced paper products in all our VIP areas, Backstage and Volunteer Headquarters
We upcycle leftover sugarcane fiber from the sugar milling process and convert it to packaging and foodservice products such as plates, bowls, and take-out containers. Tellus is jointly owned by Florida Crystals Corporation, Sugar Cane Growers Cooperative of Florida and American Sugar Refining, Inc., part of ASR Group. Our owners are made up of more than 45 mostly family farms, who have been proud to carefully cultivate sugarcane and vegetables in South Florida for generations. Our farmers not only produce the sugarcane fiber for our eco-friendly products but also the fresh, homegrown produce that fill our plates at your barbecue.
