We are a Zero Waste event.

Do you know that Plano International Festival diverted 82% of waste from landfill? Our comprehensive ZERO WASTE program ensures that all participants and visitors (food, vendors and children activities) comply with environmentally friendly practices, intending to send no discards to the landfill. Thanks to everyone who “pitched-in”!
Our Zero Waste event was awarded the 2009, 2011 and 2012 City of Plano Environmental Star of Excellence Award, Keep Texas Beautiful 2012 Civic Organization Award Second Place, and Green Source DFW Environmental Leadership Awards 2012 Finalist
