About The Green Apple Music & Arts Festival:

Produced by Peter Shapiro and Relix magazine in partnership with Earth Day Network and presented by JPMorgan Chase, The Green Apple Music & Arts Festival will put the Earth Day message into practice by “greening” all of the participating venues. Green Apple will provide venues in each city with environmentally friendly cups and straws, napkins and paper towels made of recycled materials, compostable garbage bags and biodegradable cleaning materials to ensure the event has a direct impact on how the venues operate.

Furthering their zero waste goal, the entire Festival will be carbon-neutral, meaning it will offset any carbon dioxide emission produced as a result of the festival, making this the nation’s largest carbon-neutral event ever. Additionally, each venue will have an informational table featuring educational and volunteer information relating to prominent environmental issues and organizations.
