Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival is going green in 2020.


The music festival, which takes place at Empire Polo Club in Indio, California each year, is putting its focus on the environment — by teaming up with Global Inheritance to reduce its imprint, as well as Everybody World, a brand that creates merchandise from recycled materials.

Coachella is stressing the importance of leaving no trace — “keep the desert green, clean and beautiful.”

In addition, there’s an ongoing competition — called TRASHed: Art of Recycling — to design Coachella recycling bins. Winners will receive passes to the festival to see their eco-friendly work in action. Submissions must be made by February 14. More info here.

This comes as Coachella has also announced its partnership with Contigo, a leading innovator of water bottles and the festival’s official reusable bottle partner in 2020. The goal is to reduce single-use PET plastic and encourage reusability throughout the festival and beyond.

Attendees can purchase the water bottle either at the festival or at coachella.com. Those who are not attending but still would like to do their part by reducing on-the-go beverage waste can purchase the limited-edition festival bottle on GoContigo.com.
