We don't try to make a habit of tooting our own horn (why drive a car when you can ride a bike), but in this case - toot toot! Sled Island has been awarded the "Commended Greener Festival Award," signifying a well-managed and environmentally aware festival. Through a combination of our Green Team's initiatives to encourage: cycling (through cyclist education, increased bike rack presence and bike rentals), proper composting and recycling, particularly at our outdoor sites and partnerships with other environmentally aware local organizations - Sled Island has never been greener. Congratulations to our friends at the Calgary Folk Festival who also received the award in 2012! All signs point to an even greener festival June 19-22, 2013.
