Zero Waste Management
HTA and HVCB encourage incorporation and implementation of "green" practices into your festival/event. Counties of Hawaiʻi and Kauaʻi provide helpful guidelines in Zero Waste Management practices for events.
HTA and HVCB encourage events to become certified as a Green Event under the State of Hawaiʻi’s Hawaiʻi Green Business Program. The purpose is to conserve Hawaiʻi’s natural resources by implementing practices that conserve and save water, energy, and lower the amount of solid waste generated.
