Building on our efforts from previous years, Pines Party 2021 is committed to being at the forefront of eco-conscious festival events. Our 2021 initiatives will focus on:
- minimizing plastic waste by providing recyclable cups and refillable water bottles;
- reducing our carbon footprint by collaborating with our local refuse and recycling contractor to double our diversion and recycling rates from 2019; and
- returning the beach to its pristine natural condition through a post-event beach raking by our volunteer cleanup crew.
When Pines Party 2021 is over, we intend to leave our newly replenished beach cleaner than we found it! We thank our friends at the Pines-based Seashore Defense Fund for supporting our eco-initiatives.
