Avalanche Summit II continues its commitment to sustainability. We are proud to announce our renewed partnership with Bye Bye Plastic Foundation to reduce our plastic and carbon footprint.
Read more below about the sustainability initiatives we are implementing this year, and learn how you can participate in helping us keep our event clean!
BRING YOUR OWN CUP AND BOTTLE
Keys? Cellphone? Wallet?.... Reusable Cup or Bottle? CHECK!
In an effort to seed a reusable and circular culture for the future we strongly encourage you to pack and bring your own reusable cup and bottle to Summit. Think of the distinctive impression that networking with your very own unique drinking cup and bottle creates! Every custom sticker's a conversation starter!
For guests who forget their cup or bottle at home, reusable cups will be available on site at the bars and at water stations. Watch how this played out last year through this quick recap video.
You can reuse your cup throughout the day, or swap it for a new one at the bar. Return it back to the bar or dispose of it in one of the cup return bins. Don’t forget to drop it in the return bins before leaving the Poble Espanyol!
Summit will be measuring cup return rate. Help us reach our goal by properly returning reusable cups, and not throwing them away in other trash bins or taking them home with you.
In lieu of water bottles, water stations will be located throughout the event for you to stay hydrated. Unpackaged water is our conscious health choice for you, and for the planet!
This year, Summit is getting food-smart by implementing 2 initiatives: salvation of food leftovers and composting of food waste. Did you know that food waste in landfills emit methane, a greenhouse gas more harmful than carbon dioxide?
Don’t throw your food or foodware away! We will have designated composting bins for all foodware including: cutlery, napkins, bowls, plates, and food containers.
Food Waste Reduction
Because every event has food leftovers, Summit will be using the services of Aurea, a food left-over salvation organization that will dispatch the delicious & perfectly edible left-over food from each day.
