Rock the Green Music Festival is a non-profit festival that encourages sustainable and healthy lifestyles for communities near and far.
Veolia Environmental Services is a large sponsor of the event. The company will provide on site composting and recycling. There will also be eco friendly programs, emerging green technologies, and tips to reduce your carbon footprint.
The festival will be powered by clean energy sources such as: biomass, solar, wind and bio-diesel powered generators. All disposable items will be replaced with their compostable equivalents, while a Green Team will manage waste recovery stations throughout the grounds. Finally, free water stations will replace the usual individually sold, plastic water bottles.
There will be locally grown food and beverage vendors, a bike tour before the concert, and 6 bands to fill the stage. Many interactive areas will focus around our 4 main elements: earth, water, fire, and air. These elements reflect the various sustainable and renewable technologies.

Praxis Guitars are made to be modular, with all of the electronic components within one plate that can be swapped out on different bodies or different necks. They’re made from recycled and salvaged materials, whenever possible, and since it’s possible for you to reattach pieces to different bodies, you can also upcycle old items and give them a new life. For instance, even an old schoolbook was transformed into a body.
Not only are the materials and concept TreeHugger-friendly, but so too is the whole business model.
