Zero Waste Event
The Plano International Festival is a Zero Waste event and was awarded the 2008 and 2010 City of Plano Environmental Star of Excellence Award and recognized as a Green Source DFW Environmental Leadership Awards Finalist. Last year’s Festival diverted 82% of waste from landfill! Nearly three-quarters of all waste generated was recycled or composted, thanks to nearly 70 volunteer Green Ambassadors who helped attendees sort their trash.
Admission and parking are free. Visit www.planointernationalfestival.org to learn more.
