Sustainability is a vital part of the Roots N Blues Festival. Volunteers and staff promote sustainability and communicate its importance to the attendees. The festival grounds at Stephens Lake Park will be filled with signs reminding everyone to recycle, and there will be a water station to encourage the use of refillable water bottles.
This sustainability planning is a year-long process for the organizers, says Festival Sustainability Director Scout Merry. “Sustainability is woven into every decision they make.” Every aspect of the festival, from arrival to the cleanup process, is planned with green practices in mind.
