Air Alliance Houston has a long-standing commitment to environmental and social sustainability that includes striving for zero waste, reducing Earth Day Houston’s carbon footprint, and supporting Texas charities.
In honor of our 10 Year Anniversary of presenting Earth Day Houston, we are proud to unveil our official Green Initiatives:
- Encouraging vendors to minimize and recycle packaging
- Donating unused food to charity
- Paperless registration for Earth Day Houston partners
- Implementing several “Waste Stations” throughout the festival where trash will be sorted into recycling, landfill and compost. This initiative made possible through our Title Sponsor, Waste Management.
- Eliminating plastic water bottles by partnering with Culligan to offer complimentary filtered water for partners and attendees
- On site recycling of polystyrene in the Recycling Zone by Friends of Foam
- Encourage use of bike transport to/from the fest and providing complimentary Bike Valet via our partners at Bike Houston.
New Hydration Stations for 2015:
We are proud to be partnering with Culligan to offer complimentary water at three stations throughout the festival. Please bring your own water bottle to the festival to limit waste. Earth Day Houston will have reusable water bottles for sale at our INFO tent.
