The Environment

As members of the community, Ottawa Festivals members have made efforts to become more green and make a minimal impact on the environment. Many festivals have introduced extended recycling programs, ride sharing, event-specific public transportation options and carbon offsetting strategies.

Resources to become more green:

  • Pickup Pal
    An eco-rideshare program that matches drivers and passengers to help reduce the carbon footprint.
  • Green Ottawa
    Green Ottawa is a gateway to everything green and sustainable in Ottawa-Gatineau and the National Capital Region. It\’s a starting point for connecting with green-minded people, places, organizations and opportunities across the region.
  • Environmental Expert
