ROCK THE OCEAN’S TORTUGA MUSIC FESTIVAL REVS UP ONSITE SUSTAINABILITY INITIATIVES FOR THIS YEAR’S
THREE-DAY, THREE-STAGE BEACHSIDE FESTIVAL
Tortuga Introduces Reusable Cups, Continues Festival-Wide Recycling, Enforces No Plastic Straws and More Eco-Friendly Efforts Nashville, TN – April 9, 2019 – Rock The Ocean’s Tortuga Music Festival is sailing around the corner of its upcoming seventh year set to take place in Ft. Lauderdale on April 12-14. Each year, the festival strives to build on its conservation and sustainability initiatives onsite. Efforts such as providing compostable service-ware, enforcing no plastic straws or sales of plastic water bottles, donating all leftover food and serving food that is responsibly caught and farmed, as well as encouraging fans to take alternative transportation to help reduce the emissions associated with fan travel, are some of the ways Tortuga encourages attendees to live in an environmentally and eco-friendly way, all in support of ocean conservation.
For the first time, Tortuga Music Festival will also introduce another way to reduce single-use plastic by offering fans the opportunity to purchase a limited-edition pint cup that can be used all weekend long. Attendees will have additional opportunities throughout the weekend to learn more about ocean conservation and sustainability, alongside ways to actively help #RockTheOcean at the festival’s onsite Conservation Village where they can interact with over 30 worldwide leaders in ocean conservation. Conservation Village also allows attendees to enjoy games, interactive touch tanks, cooking exhibitions and the latest in ocean technology.
