Thank you for taking the time to learn more about CU Denver's efforts to make the Block Party a Green Event!
The CU Denver Block Party earned its green certification from Certificably Green Denver (CGD) in 2018. Environmental considerations are incorporated into all aspects of the Block Party because the University of Colorado maintains a strong commitment to sustainability in all aspects of its operation. As part of our overall environmental strategy, we require vendors to meet certain environmental criteria including energy efficiency, water conservation, resource management, and transportation. Check out our Environmental Benefit Summary from the 2018 event showing our 83% diversion rate!
With the help of EcoCycle and the on-campus student organization Students for Sustainability, the Block Party hopes to divert a majority of its waste away from landfills, and into composting and recycling. Interested in joining our "Green Team" at the event? Contact us today!
