Almost from the beginning of our organization we have encouraged and engaged in recycling and waste reduction activities.  For years we have seriously recycled at our MoonDance festival by setting up separate containers for cardboard, metal, plastic, glass and food scraps. The installation of new water fountains and our encouragement that dancers bring reusable water containers has greatly reduced both paper and plastic materials discarded after dances at River Falls Lodge. Due to the remote location of River Falls Lodge, we encourage dancers to car-pool, both to save fuel and to reduce over-crowding in the parking areas.
