Evolve 2009

With the help of a community receptive to sustainability action, and organizers who are dedicated to doing their part to ensure a green future, Evolve has been dubbed “Canada’s greenest festival." Since its inception, Evolve has shown that it is possible host a fun outdoor music festival, while at the same time championing environmental causes issues and inspiring positive behavioural change.

Evolve's environmental initiatives include: The Clean Concert Pledge, a zero-waste festival using recycling stations to make it really easy to properly dispose of paper, plastic, garbage, compost and recyclable cans and bottles. All Evolve posters and marketing materials are printed on select recycled stock using environmentally-friendly waterless printing presses that eliminate vast amounts of water waste. Additionally, our print shop uses sustainable, renewable Bullfrog Power to run their printers; and all Evolve clothing merchandise is printed on either organically grown cotton or recycled materials, using fair trade and labour practices. Evolve food vendors in the village use compostable and biodegradable food packaging and eco-cutlery. Evolve encourages carpooling to reduce CO2 emissions per passenger mile.
