Each year, about 24.7 percent of Clark County's waste needlessly enters local landfills, according to Clark County Environmental Services. That translates roughly into 63,800 tons for 2011! Changing our definition of waste is one way to reduce Clark County's environmental footprint, and that's exactly the focus of the Seventh Annual Recycled Arts Festival.
"We're working to change peoples' perceptions about waste to create a cleaner, healthier environment," said Clark County Environmental Services Sustainability Specialist, Sally Fisher. "With its history of ecofriendly business practices and commitment to sustainability, Columbia Credit Union is the ideal partner for this event."
Dubbed the hippest, most eco-conscious festival of the year, the Recycled Arts Festival is a Rose Festival sanctioned event showcasing landfill items that have been given new life. As the corporate sponsor of this event, Columbia supports the Dept. of Environmental Services and their efforts to encourage waste reduction, reuse and recycling throughout Clark County. Be sure to stop by Columbia's booth for your chance to win a beautiful potting bench made of recycled materials and a slew of other free gifts and giveaways.
"The Recycled Arts Festival is a fun opportunity to spread the message of sustainability to the entire community," said Columbia Credit Union Vice President of Social Responsibility, Laurie Kusch. "As Columbia continues working on reducing its environmental foot print, we hope this event will inspire more people to adopt a greener lifestyle."
With plenty of fun for everyone, the festival features live music, children's entertainment, hands-on activities, information and artists' wares made from at least 75 percent recycled or reused materials for sale. For more information, visit www.recycledartsfestival.com.
