First Friday Las Vegas, LLC is a “green” business! We not only strive to reduce our environmental impact at the festival each first Friday of the month, by reducing, reusing, and wisely managing water, energy, and materials consumed, but the First Friday crew also strives to reduce their environmental impact throughout the month making wise decisions in the First Friday office.
This is why we are so proud to be one of the first 56 local businesses selected to be in the Clean Energy Project (CEP)’s Buy Green List.
Clean Energy Project released its Buy Green List, Nevada’s first green consumer guide on Earth Day to a huge success. The list was covered on 8 News Now, and traffic to the CEP website was the highest it has been all year. CEP notes that this “mak[es] it clear that Southern Nevadans are hungry for the power to reward businesses that support policies and practices that benefit the environment and grow our economy!”
First Friday Las Vegas strives to lead in festivals becoming more environmental. We want to show that from office to outdoor festival, production companies can reduce their impact and educate their attendees thus inspiring other companies and festivals to do the same. Among our many green initiatives, First Friday is a styrofoam-free and flyer-free event, working with food trucks and vendors to find alternative and more sustainable ways to deliver delicious food and product and services information to our thousands of monthly attendees. First Friday also uses “clear stream” recycling, a proven method to get more people to be conscious of their waste during the festival. We also use solar trailers and solar lighting in numerous sectors of the festival footprint so we draw less from the grid, and provide cleaner energy to our vendors and guests.
Green Street at First Friday emphasizes First Friday’s green mission by showcasing what is green, healthy, and sustainable at all levels of community. It is a place where the environmentally minded can come together and share stories and resources while engaging the public with green awareness, activities, and fun. Common features cover food, health, renewable and alternative energy sources, and of course, eco-savvy artists. Follow Green Street Las Vegas on Facebook and Tweet #GreenStreetLV @FirstFridayLV.
