Happy Earth Day!

April 22, 2023 - by: Ashly Othic

Happy Earth Day, community! The Santa Barbara Bowl Foundation strives to be gracious stewards of the land on which we host all our guests and is currently a concert-industry leader in greening procedures. 

Today, our "Greening the Bowl" initiative seeks to make the venue as close to carbon neutral as possible.

Here are just a few of the multiple approaches we are implementing to achieve this goal;

Become stewards of the land by cultivating California native and drought-tolerant plants and creating an open, natural space for all flora and fauna. The Bowl plans to protect and maintain surrounding wildlife, monitor the thousands of Pacific Oak trees, and create a healthy micro-environment for all our residents.

Encourage alternate forms of transportation, including car-free and rideshare opportunities. Bike to the Bowl! Get the best parking using our complimentary Bike Valet service!

Lower production of landfill material as close to zero as possible through recycling, reuse of all possible materials, reduction of single-use materials and composting. Bring your reusable cup! Thank you for your continued partnership in the Bowl reusable pint program!

Reduce energy consumed through a comprehensive, low-energy lighting initiative. Replacing lighting fixtures venue-wide will save thousands of kW/h in electricity, continuing to save on natural resources.

Eliminate annual power consumption through large-scale photovoltaic installations through our multi-phase solar project.

New water refill stations are located throughout the venue! Refill your reusable cup or water bottle!

We hope everyone takes time to celebrate our beloved mother earth on this day and every day. See you at the next show!
