Waste Reduction and Recycling
In 2016, we partnered with Napa Valley Expo, Sustainable Napa County and Napa Recycling & Waste Services to keep 76 tons (152,000 lbs) of waste out of the landfill through our recycling and composting programs. In addition, BottleRockers eliminated 172,000 plastic water bottles from use by filling up reusable bottles at CamelBak Water Refill Stations throughout the grounds.
We always encourage the use of alternative transportation like buses, carpooling, cycling and walking. Through our 2016 ticketed daily bus service from cities around Northern California, BottleRockers kept over 1,600 cars off the road. Plus, more than 1,000 fans rode their bikes to the festival each day reducing carbon emissions.
We make it a priority to showcase everything the Napa Valley has to offer and keeps things local. We work with 30 Napa Valley wineries and 28 Napa restaurants to keep fans fueled during the festival.
We invite the future generation to participate in BottleRock’s celebration of music, culture and community. In 2016, over 1,000 kids were registered in the LittleRockers program, which was introduced for guests 6 years and younger so Festival staff have a way to reconnect separated families.
We’re honored to have contributed to local organizations that serve the the community. These organizations include:
Napa Chamber of Commerce Community Foundation, Napa Valley Vintners, Napa Valley Education Foundation, Napa Unified School District, V Foundation, Hispanic Network, St. Helena Co-op, Ed Foundation, Porchfest, St. Johns Lutheran, Gasser Foundation, Oxbow School, Blue Oak School, St. A’s school, Justin Siena High School, Roots and Shoots and Do it for the Love.
