Earth Day 2012: One and Done!

2012 Earth Day is officially DONE!

So much to talk about but some key stats and figures:

 

  • 923 people took a test drive in one of the new electric vehicles in the Green Car Show. Thanks to the teams from Chevy Volt, Coda, Ford Focus, Nissan Leaf, and Toyota Prius for making this possible.
  • We counted about 1,500 bikes at the festival. 850 took advantage of free valet bike parking in Bike World. Still more came by foot or bus. Special thanks to our partners at the SB Bicycle Coalition, MTD, and Santa Barbara Car Free.
  • The amount of water distributed by our water stations this year was equivalent to 2,000 plastic bottles.
  • 85% of the waste generated by the festival was diverted from the landfill. Special thanks to Green Project Consultants for hand sorting each piece.

Gratitude and Congratulations to the entire production team from Plus One Events, New Noise, and the LoaTree crew.  Special thanks to the Community Environmental Council for bringing out team on again this year.

GREAT year peeps..let’s do it again.
