Event organizers who were hoping to stay true to this event’s core goals and reduce environmental impact made a commitment to uphold a more sustainable and less waste approach to this year’s Energy Roundup. “Improving the event, yet conscious of the need for our attendees to have access to water, led us to naturally contact the people at Pure Quality Water”, stated Co-Organizer Laura Rice. Mike Gomez and Anton Montgomery of Pure Quality Water are used to providing communities with pure fresh filtered drinking water as they have been doing in Bulverde, Texas since 2003. According to Mike Gomez, ‘it was a natural fit for us and we’re happy to help”. The Energy Roundup organizers are excited to announce that there will be a station at the festival with 12 spigots that will provide pure fresh drinking water FREE for festival goers. Souvenir stainless steel containers will be available for sale but those who wish may provide their own cups – so BYOC and help reduce waste and save!
