Waste Free Events


Sustainable CB’s Waste Free Events program reduces your need for single-use partyware items like plates, cups, forks, and napkins. Instead of hosting your event with throwaway items, we offer 100% post-consumer reusable plasticware made by Preserve, and secondhand goods donated or collected from thrift stores. In 2019 alone, we have already diverted almost 30,000 single-use waste items through this program!

If you would like to reserve our waste free materials, please complete this form.

As part of the Waste Stream Reduction initiatives of the 2019 Climate Action Plan, the Town of Crested Butte will be incentivizing event organizers to plan events that reduce waste and educate the community about the importance of  reducing waste within the valley.

A Waste Free Event is something to be very proud of! Conventional events produce  massive amounts of trash and waste, much of it from single use cups, plates, cutlery and napkins.

This Waste Free Toolkit will assist event planners by providing resources and  information that will help you create a successful Waste Free Event!
