Green Team

Please recycle during our festival – and every other day! Our Recyclers, a.k.a. Green Team, will be picking up recycling (paper, plastic, and aluminum) from the designated recycled stations (see festival map) the entire weekend, so be sure to thank our volunteers as you see them on the streets. We also help our vendors to recycle cardboard and dispose of cooking oil and waste water. We ask our food vendors to only use compostable food storage and silverware, along with recyclable drinkware; our crafts vendors are asked to only use recyclable plastic bags or paper bags. And this year we are rewarding a GREENEST VENDOR PRIZE for the first time!

It is thanks to our partners and volunteers that we are able to make the festival greener every year, especially:

Ball Corporation has been with us the past five years collecting our aluminum cans for recycling. Proceeds from the sale of the cans will go to our local United Way organization.

EcoLogical Energy Systems is a local wind and solar energy provider. They will offer solar charging stations for your cell phone. Look for them at the Green Team tent.

Keep Bristol Beautiful are working hard to eliminate styrofoam and other food container products that are not eco-friendly. This is now mandatory for our food vendors.

Revolution Curbside Recycling is a local business that will pick up recyclables at your door. They will assist in the clean-up and disposal of all festival recycling materials.

Necessary Oil Company will help all the food vendors dispose of their left-over cooking grease.

Other goals we have to make Bristol Rhythm sustainable in the future?

  • -Reusable stainless steel pint glasses for sale in our beer gardens
  • -Water fill-up stations for your reusable camelbacks and thermoses in all indoor venues
  • -Reusable tote bags on sale with the Green Team logo
  • -And more!

Help us keep the festival GREEN.

Green Team applications will be available soon.
