Les Schwab Amphitheater Institutes New Sustainable Initiative for All Concerts
“Take Note Initiative” reduces waste for events


The Les Schwab Amphitheater’s Take Note Initiative is a sustainability initiative designed to reduce waste and make the amphitheater a more environmentally friendly venue. Take Note Initiative elements include a reusable pint program, compostable cups, no single-use plastic bottles for sale and a water filtration station. Recycling, waste management and composting provided by The Broomsmen at each concert.

Thanks to our sustainability initiatives the amphitheater successfully cut the total waste in half. Fifty percent of the total waste from the 2016 and 2017 concert seasons was successfully diverted from a landfill. At the amphitheater, single-use plastic water bottles and plastic drink cups are a thing of the past.

Join us for our third year of making the Les Schwab Amphitheater a community model of sustainability. All our beverage cups, plates and utensils used by food vendors are 100% certified compostable.

Bring your own re-usable canteen or water bottle to re-fill at our free water station. Water canteens are also available for purchase. Look for our colorful water filtration system and additional drinking fountains throughout the venue.

Purchase a reusable limited edition LSA Silipints for beer, cider, wine or cocktails of your choice for $20. Your first beverage is included in this price. Get $1 off each additional drink purchase. We are honoring all 2016 and 2017 Silipints for the 2018 concert season. LSA Silipints are available at the concierge tent and the bar at each concert. LSA Silipints come in two sizes; the classic pint size for beer and the Silipint Base Cup for wine and cocktails.

In 2014, Jack Johnson’s movement helped launch a sustainability program which has inspired venues across the country to follow suit, including the Les Schwab Amphitheater’s Take Note Initiative.
