Walk the Talk


Walk the Talk

We do our best to Walk the Talk in preparing for Boston GreenFest and operating it.  This is not always easy and we try to do a little better each year.  

Here are some of the things we hold dear:

  • No bottled water on site - fresh water is available.  Use your water bottle to fill up!
  • All materials at the festival such as festival signs and pamphlets are made from eco-friendly materials, preferably recycled or upcycled ones.
  • We try to keep our energy use to a minimum and what energy we do use, we offset with clean renewable energy.
  • We fill the plaza with plants to bring as much green and oxygen to the plaza as possible.
  • The t-shirts for our staff and volunteers are made of organic cotton.
  • We ask our exhibitors to limit the amount of paper they hand out.
  • Lighting is either LEDs or CFLs.
  • We educate people about the benefits of being vegetarian and reducing their carbon-water footprint.
  • We offer fitness classes throughout the weekend - the healthier we are, the more sustainable we are.
