Keeping Pride Green

The Green Team is coming out in full force tackling this years recycling and waste program. Elbow Grease’s recycling boxes along with San Francisco’s “Fantastic 3” mini stations will be a strategy taken this year to encourage festival goers to recycle their waste. The Green Team is committed to the vision of having SF Pride as a “zero waste” festival and so we are looking forward and being green and clean!
