Sasquatch Music Festival

Sasquatch 2010

   

May 29 - 31, 2010
The Gorge,
Washington

Cool shows. Cooler planet.

We are proud to announce that the 2010 Sasquatch! Music Festival is certified carbon neutral by Carbon Harmony, and made possible by the support of Honda.

This year’s three-day festival will be 100% wind powered. Additionally, Carbon Harmony will offset 125% of the estimated greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from:

  • Fuel used by all Sasquatch! artists, attendees, and staff vehicles traveling to and from the festival
  • Energy used at the Gorge Amphitheatre during the festival*

Offsetting more than 100% of these GHG emissions will lead to a net reduction in the atmosphere, and a positive effect on our climate.

The three day festival will be 100% wind powered. Additionally, Carbon Harmony will offset 125% of the greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions produced during the festival at The Gorge Amphitheatre located in George, Washington. By offsetting more GHG emissions than the festival produces, the result is a net reduction in the amount of GHG in the atmosphere which provides a positive effect on our climate.

How does it work?

This year, Carbon Harmony will be funding projects that reduce GHG emissions on dairy farms in the Pacific Northwest. This will include methane collection and combustion projects that work to convert methane gas from animal waste into clean electricity. This internationally recognized process offers two benefits: GHG reduction and renewable energy generation. Chicago Climate Exchange verifies and approves the procedures to ensure they comply with international protocols.

*The estimated figures for fuel consumption, energy consumption, and the resulting GHG emissions are based on attendance and energy figures from previous Sasquatch! Music Festivals and the official statistics from the U.S. government, made available by the U.S. Department of Energy and Energy Information Administration.
