Last month, InvitedHome had five teammates volunteer at the Blues, Brews and BBQ Festival in Beaver Creek, CO. Our volunteers helped eliminate waste during the festival at Beaver Creek Resort. With the help of Walking Mountains and their sustainability team, the event endeavored to be a Zero Waste Event.
Walking Mountains showed our InvitedHome teammates how to set up “Zero Hero” tents which consisted of compost, recycle, and trash bins. Volunteers at these tents educated festival attendees on what items can be composted and recycled instead of being thrown in landfills. We also advised the vendors on which specific bins were best suited for their waste goals.
As the event kicked off, we walked around the festival checking each of the “Zero Hero” tents and sorting the disposed waste into appropriate bins. This was no clean task but the team had a blast!
Overall, the festival was a huge success!
We look forward to giving back to other communities through team volunteer events!
