The Clean Vibes' Trading Post
Win a Free Ride for 2 to Bonnaroo 2014!
This year welcomes back the Clean Vibes Trading Post, a non-profit project that wants to reward YOU for your green behavior. Help recycle as much as possible at Bonnaroo by turning in cans and bottles—then “trade” those cans and bottles for cool prizes! The cans and bottles become a currency of sort, and the more recycling you collect, the more valuable items you can “purchase.” Bring your cans and bottles to any of the Campground Pods or to the Trading Post in Planet Roo, and “cash them in.”
This year the Clean Vibes’ Trading Post is excited to partner with blu eCigs for the first ever “Cover Your Butt” program to help reduce cigarette butt litter on site. Stop by the Trading Post and pick up a small bag, fill it with cigarette butts, and turn it in for points just like the cans and bottles.
Depending on the number of cans and bottles, or butts, you turn in, you will receive a certain number of point vouchers. Bring your vouchers to the Clean Vibes’ Trading Post in Planet Roo and trade them in for your choice of a variety of awesome prizes– from earth friendly health and beauty products and organic clothing to autographed band merchandise and food vendor vouchers. Cash them in for small stuff or keep collecting points throughout the weekend to “purchase” something big! The person who trades in the most recycling throughout the weekend will receive 2 tickets to next year’s event! RECYCLE & WIN!
The Clean Vibes Trading Post is the non-profit arm of Clean Vibes, a company formed and dedicated to the responsible waste and recycling management of outdoor festivals and events. Clean Vibes has been a part of all of the previous Bonnaroo festivals, handling the trash and recycling management for each event. Over the past eleven years, Clean Vibes has diverted over three and a half million pounds of recyclable and compostable material produced at the festival from the landfill.
