Know a music-loving teen or 20-something looking for a J-O-B this summer? Check out the offerings from Clean Vibes, an organization that shows concertgoers how easy it is to go green while rocking out.
Clean Vibes started in 1997 in response to the obvious need for organized waste removal for outdoor music festivals. Since then, the group have rocked the recycling at music events all over the country, from the Lake Eden Arts festival in Black Mountain, N.C., to the High Sierra Music Festival in Quincy, Calif., to the ever-popular Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival in Manchester, Tenn.
What's most unique about Clean Vibe is that they don't just take care of the recycling, they also provide education to concertgoers, helping them to reduce their own eco-footprint, both at the event and at home. The company provides incentives throughout the concert to encourage fans to clean up and make sure that appropriate items are recycled.
Clean Vibes has paid and volunteer opportunities for folks who want to listen to their favorite tunes while going green this summer. Check out their website for upcoming events and application details.
