Sustainability at Tortuga
Tortuga is proudly a trailblazer in sustainability, and always has been. Tortuga Music Festival was the first major music festival to ban the sale of plastic bottles in 2015 and that was just the beginning. Banning all single-use plastic serviceware, implementing a comprehensive recycling program & composting, and drafting the industry's most aggressive sustainability plan for a large-scale event is just the tip of the iceberg. We are on a mission to demonstrate that being sustainable won't hinder the fan experience. In fact, it enhances it. And that's why we're on track to be the most sustainable large-scale music festival on the planet. Dive in here and learn more about our sustainability efforts.
