San Jose Achieves Green Event Certification
We are thrilled to announce that we were awarded “Green Event Certification” by the City of San Jose Environmental Services Department for our participation in their Zero Waste Events program for the past two years.
We achieved a score of 86% diversion from landfills by implementing recycling, composting, and waste prevention/reduction measures. A BIG thank you to all participants and spectators who helped us get there by using the labeled containers on site to divert their waste to the right places!
Also, a big thank you to the City of San Jose for being incredible hosts and for implementing these programs to keep events accountable for their environmental footprints!
We have come a long way in our 8 year history in San Jose in terms of going GREEN, and look forward to even more improvements (and a higher score!) in 2014 and beyond!
