Our Green Efforts

Our Commitment to Green Events
Facilitated through partnership with St. Louis Earth Day and their Recycling On the Go event-greening program (www.stlouisearthday.org).

Festival of Nations is committed to incorporating sustainable practices to reduce the environmental impact of this year's event. Our goal this year is to send less waste to area landfills. Since 2011, we have diverted 20.9 tons of waste from area landfills by collecting recyclable materials from both event attendees and vendors.
Transportation
Our event is easily accessible by bus and bike. We strongly urge Festival attendees to use alternative transport or carpool.
Vendors & Exhibitors
We use locally-owned businesses and vendors for our rentals, services and product purchases whenever possible. We also make suggestions to vendors on how they can decrease waste, such as minimizing hand outs and selecting eco-friendly promotional products.
