GRAZIE! WE EXCEEDED OUR 2012 GREEN GOAL!
WE HIT IT OUT OF THE PARK BY ACHIEVING A 96% DIVERSION RATE
The Italian American Heritage Foundation recognizes the impact that large events can have on the environment. Since 2008, we have partner with Nothing Wasted Consulting and the City of San Jose Environmental Services. to lower landfill waste and increase recyclable disposals. With the assistance of the City’s green event grant the Italian Family Festa 2012 goal was to divert 75% of its waste from ending up as landfill. We are pleased to announce:
In 2012, the Italian Family Festa achieved 96% diversion rate from the
landfill by implementing recycling, composting and waste prevention/reduction, according to the Environmental Services Department, Zero Waste Events Team's final report.
Through this partnership, we will continue to add sustainable waste management best practices into the event.
It only works with your help, so be on the lookout for the “recyclables” containers located
throughout the Festa then all you have to do is place:
any plastic bottles, plastic containers, aluminum cans, and aluminum foil into the blue “recyclables” containers.
