Sustainable Downtown Alive!

Are you recovered from Festival yet? If not, you've got two more days to get ready for Downtown Alive!, Lafayette's weekly mini-Festival!

The action resumes Friday evening in Downtown Lafayette with Lil Nate and the Zydeco Big Timers.

And the best part is DTA's newest addition - recycling options!

Buying beer and drinks helps to support DTA and keep it free for all patrons (that's you!). Leave your own drinks at home. And now, you'll be able to recycle those beer and drink cups and soft drink and water bottles on-site!

In addition, you can purchase a Downtown Alive! reusable plastic cup (similar to the ubiquitous Festival cups) for $2. With the cup, you get two extra ounces of beer over a regular plastic cup, and you'll be able to reuse it all season long.

One cup for the rest of the season versus two or three cups every week? The answer is obvious! Support free events by buying your drinks, and support the environment by recycling your cups instead of throwing them away or littering them.

But if you get the plain drink cups or soft drink bottles, be sure to recycle them when you're done!

And the fun doesn't stop with the seasonal DTA! In addition to DTA!, recycling service will also be available for any downtown event, courtesy of Downtown Lafayette Unlimited.

Recycling service will begin downtown on May 1st for DTA!, Downtown Crawfish Boil on May 6, Movies in the Parc throughout the summer and other events held in the downtown parcs. Thanks to Downtown Lafayette Unlimited for their dedication and work to provide recycling services for everyone who visits.

As Downtown Marketing Director Kate Durio says,

“We are looking forward to reducing the amount of waste at all events Downtown and set an example for the rest of Acadiana."

Grab your reusable DTA cup and come on out for the rest of the season:
