Tennessee’s Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival wrapped up its 13th annual event just weeks ago. Aside from drawing together some of the biggest musical acts in the world from a huge variety of genres, the festival is also known for its dedication to social activism, particularly in regards to the environment. Here’s a look at some of the ways in which Bonnaroo does some good for the world while giving festival-goers the time of their lives.

1. Recycling and composting

Bonnaroo’s biggest causes are related to protecting the environment, which the people, plants, and animals of Manchester, Tennessee, certainly appreciate during the 361 days of the year their town isn’t taken over by the festival. Trash areas around the festival grounds have separate bins for refuse that needs to go to the landfill, compost, and recycling. All the the food served by Bonnaroo vendors comes with plates and silverware made with compostable materials, and the festival encourages the recycling of almost all salvageable materials. While the figures aren’t yet in for this year’s festival, in 2013, Bonnaroo diverted 366.37 tons of waste from going to the landfill through its recycling and composting programs.
