GreenLight Solutions was asked by New Belgium to lead the zero waste efforts at this year’s Tour de Fat in Tempe. We brought on a “Green Team” of 11 volunteers and ensured they were all educated and comfortable with recycling best practices for large events. Our dynamic “Green Team” lead the zero waste efforts by ‘Bin guarding’ or directing & educating attendees on recycling etiquette; transporting and exchanging full bins; Sorting the recycling bins to ensure all possible materials are being recycled; and picking up any litter left behind by attendees.
Sustainability by the Numbers:
4,500+ Cyclists and Guests.
320lbs. of recyclable material diverted from the landfill.
1,200lbs. of waste.
