Green Up Denver has partnered with the City and County of Denver’s Department of Environmental Health to certify vendors’ green performance at the festivals in a “LEEDs certification meets Best of Denver” award. Participating businesses can display the certifications at their booths and in their businesses over the next year. “It’s our hope that vendors who meet these criteria will be celebrated for their commitment to helping create greener events for our community,” says Cody Galloway, Community Relations Manager for the Capitol Hill People’s Fair.

“Many events have approached me about creating a certification like this in the past, but Green Up Denver is the first group to establish vetted and measurable environmental criteria for events in our city,” says Janet Burgesser, Program Coordinator for the Department of Environmental Health‘s Certifiably Green Denver. “I’m excited to work with Green Up Denver to refine and strengthen these criteria to benefit all festivals and parades in the coming years.”
