Sustainability Commitment Statement

Reduce Waste and Recycle
Richmond’s Green Ambassadors will be on site helping event attendees properly dispose of their waste.
Make Smart Water Choices
Richmond’s portable water stations will be on site at all Major Events, meaning you can bring your refillable water bottle from home and have free, clean, fresh, and cold drinking water.
Promote Public and Clean Transportation
