Green Team


The National Folk Festival is going green and we need your help!

Recycling and composting conserves natural resources and energy by giving materials a new life. Unfortunately, we are not able to recycle and compost all materials distributed at the event. In order to divert as much waste as possible from the landfill, we need your help!

We are looking for volunteers to assist event patrons with recycling and composting through education and awareness. We will also have gloves on hand if you don’t mind pulling the odd piece of trash from the recycling bins. The economic and environmental benefits of recycling depend on a “clean” material stream without contamination of non-recyclable materials. We need your help to make this happen.
