FON FEST 2013 aims to become the first Carbon Neutral Event to be held in the City of Miami, Florida
JustGreen Lifestyle has partnered with FON FEST as the official carbon offset sponsor to help make the two day festival carbon neutral and bring the green into music and the arts.
JustGreen will donate verified carbon offsets to help offset the emissions associated with the artists and performers traveling to and from FON FEST. This will help prevent more than 100 tonnes or 220,462 lbs. of carbon dioxide (CO2) from entering the atmosphere, equivalent to planting 2,564 trees.
In keeping with the spirit of FON FEST, JustGreen Lifestyle is also giving event guests the chance to offset their commute to and from the festival through the purchase of carbon credits. It's easy and affordable just visit JustGreen's Facebook Store .
"We are all about helping the planet and bringing the community together to do the same. What better way to kick off this year's event than to work with JustGreen Lifestyle to offset the carbon footprint FON FEST 2013 creates and make it 100% carbon neutral," said Ines Galindo, Co-Founder and Visionary of FON FEST. "We are excited to educate our artists, vendors and fans on the importance of fighting global warming and offering everyone an affordable way to offset their own personal carbon footprint."
"We are pleased to partner with FON FEST whose mission to help the planet is very much aligned with JustGreen goals to help stop global warming," says Gerardo Manalac, EVP, JustGreen. "We hope our partnership will motivate festival participants and the general public to take a proactive interest in making greener lifestyle choices."
About Friends of Nature Music Festival
Friends of Nature Music Festival (FON FEST) aims to raise awareness about saving the planet through two days of spectacular music, food, entertainment and a wide variety of activities as well as exhibitors. FON FEST will welcome thousands of attendees with the purpose of raising environmental awareness and promoting companies that have green initiatives. Unlike many music festivals, it will source all power from natural sources such as solar, bio-fuel and natural gas generators as well as ensure all products sold remain true to the Festival's eco-friendly mandate. On the Festival grounds there will be numerous recycle stations and compost stations, where attendees can refill water packs or bottles instead of creating excess waste by purchasing a number of bottled water. It will also allow a free platform for several foundations to promote their mission to save the planet. It is the first comprehensively eco-friendly, interactive music festival to happen in Miami. Ines Galindo and Oscar Diaz, Co-Owners of Eyeness Productions and Co-Founders of FON FEST, along with Festival organizers aim to set the standard for other festivals and events by encouraging environmental protection and sustainability. Every year, the Festival will donate a percentage of the sold tickets to organizations dedicated to protecting the environment. For more information, visit www.fonfest.com.
