In one easy step you can make a significant improvement toward a healthier you and a healthier environment.

Replenish and rehydrate at Aquasana’s booth and just say, “Fill ‘er up, please!”
Zero Waste:
The City of Austin is the first in Texas to adopt the international standard of Zero Waste, which says at least 90% of discards will be diverted from landfills and incinerators by 2040. Austin Earth Day Festival echos this policy by bringing you a Zero Waste event! Working with Earth Day Community Partners Balcones Resources and East Side Compost Pedallers, event goers will be able to recycle paper, cardboard, glass, plastics and metals and compost all food scraps, soiled food wrappers and liquids. Join us as we go Zero Waste and “leave no trace” at the Mueller Hangar.
