Squamish Constellation Festival
is working towards being a zero-waste festival, we are dedicated to protecting the environment and everything within it. With the help of our friends at AWARE, we have introduced initiatives – big and small – that helped us reach a 94% waste diversion rate in our inaugural year. Some ways you might see us continuing this include:
Friendly Zero waste stations
Our zero waste stations will have a friendly attendants to help you know put your products in the correct bin.
Water bottle filling station
A free water bottle filling station will be available on site to reduce single use plastics. Bring your own empty container through the front gates, or fill your reusable cup between trips to the Big Rock bars.
Compostable or fiberware containers
Food trucks and vendors will use all compostable or fiberware containers.
Single Use Straws
Straws will not be available with food or beverage purchases. Should you require a straw due to an accessibility issue, these will be available in the medical tent.
MANAGING WILDLIFE ATTRACTANTS
Did you know? Squamish is located in bear country and the festival is doing its part by supplying bear-resistant garbage containers throughout the festival and walkways.
Do your part by not littering, and help us make sure that all food waste goes into bear-resistant containers.
Consider this where you park and at your campsite also! A garbage-fed bear is dangerous to humans, and often leads to dire consequences for the bear itself.
