A year-round organization, we work to improve the environmental quality of the region by providing expertise and resources through the following programs:
St. Louis Earth Day’s Recycling On the Go is the region’s first large-scale event recycling program. It reduces the negative environmental impact of events and festivals by reducing and recycling a portion of the waste they generate. In the seven-year history of the program, we have diverted approximately 241 tons of materials from area landfills, enhanced the waste management of 337 events, and exposed approximately 4.9 million people to recycling when away from home. (These figures are accurate as of June 2014)
- Full Service Event Greening
Addresses the negative environmental impact of large festivals and events by providing event consultancy and waste management support for all types of events–beginning to end. As a business, consider utilizing ROG at your company functions.
- Do-It-Yourself Event Recycling
Allows access to our fleet of recycling and compost bins by small event organizers and community groups through our bin loan membership program. Perfect for fundraisers and church gatherings!
The mission of this new, innovative program is to reduce the environmental impact of restaurants in St. Louis. We place strong emphasis on reducing, recycling and composting restaurant waste as well as sourcing sustainable food, to-go ware and cleaning supplies. Since the beginning of 2012, GDA has helped 43 local restaurants green their practices and diverted approximately 800 tons of restaurant waste. Read more…
