Thanks to our partners Green Mountain Energy Company, we have offset the emissions associated with the production of Telluride Blues & Brews Festival. Special thanks to EcoAction Partners who help coordinate our waste reduction efforts (and the associated carbon footprint reduction) through composting and recycling initiatives for both our festival and the Town of Telluride.
As a Blues & Brews fan you can help our waste reduction efforts too! Purchase a Green Mountain Energy® Green Ticket today to reduce the environmental impact of your attendance to the festival. Your purchase helps offset a portion of the CO2 emissions created by your travel to Telluride Blues & Brews Festival by supporting carbon offset projects that help take action against global climate change.
By purchasing the $3.00 Green Mountain Energy® Green Ticket, fans offset the equivalent of 220 pounds of CO2. That’s like not driving a car 240 miles, recycling 720 aluminum cans instead of sending them to a landfill, or as much as 20 young trees can absorb in one year.
Telluride Blues and Brew’s commitment over the past 4 years, to track and offset the events carbon footprint, along with offering event goers an easy way to offset their own emissions, has helped to offset approximately 786,000 lbs. of CO2! This has the same environmental impact as approximately 20,000 houses turning their lights off for one day, or like not driving 878,000 miles.
All carbon offsets purchased from Telluride will be sourced from Climate Action Reserve (CAR) projects across the United States. The project is third party certified, which means the offsets are real, permanent, additional, and verifiable.
