Treasure Island Music Festival Continues Expanding Environmental Initiatives

September 14, 2009

Once at the festival, patrons will be directed to properly dispose of their waste thanks to Clean Vibes - an organization dedicated to diverting as much waste as possible away from the world's landfills. On Treasure Island their staff and volunteers will be directing people to properly dispose of their waste whether it be recyclable, compostable, or not.

In addition to these initiatives, Global Inheritance will once again be bringing their TRASHed Recycling Store to the grounds, where the group will accept bottles, plastic cups and old cell phones in exchange for various prizes.

All printed materials at the festival use recycled paper; all napkins, paper towels, and toilet paper are made from recycled products; and cups, plates, and utensils are biodegradable. Leftover food will be brought to Bay Area shelters. Bio-diesel generators will power the entire festival.

Also new this year to Treasure Island is the Refillable Water Program, which will cut down plastic bottle consumption.  The festival is offering two different refillable spring water options for the audience's convenience, they can either purchase a TIMF branded stainless steel water bottle at the water station or the merchandise tent and receive free refills of spring water all weekend, or bring their own water bottle from home and purchase refills for $1.

The festival is also asking ticket buyers to add one or two dollars to their ticket purchase to help reduce the carbon footprint of the festival. All money collected will go towards renewable energy and reforestation programs.

A limited quantity of $115.00 2-Day tickets and VIP Single Day 2-Packs are available and can be purchased through www.treasureislandfestival.com. A VIP 2-Pack includes two VIP tickets to one day, one parking spot on island, preferred viewing area with bleachers, lounge with full bar and other amenities. Single Day tickets are available for $65.00.  To offset traffic congestion and the limited amount of parking on the island, Treasure Island Music Festival will be providing shuttles on and off the island to ticket holders at no additional cost.
