Go Green! Initiative

The Kentucky Derby Festival’s Go Green! initiative continues to step up year after year.

Expect to see Green Efforts at many Derby Festival events including Thunder Over Louisville, Kroger’s Fest-a-Ville, Great Balloon Glow, GE Appliances miniMarathon/Marathon, and the Zoeller Pump Company Pegasus® Parade among others.  We are proud to offer a zero-waste event with Kentucky Proud WineFest!

The Derby Festival’s Go Green! program, which is sponsored by LG&E, includes composting of inedible food waste; donation of edible food; use of compostable products; grease recycling and on-site recycling. Concessions by Cox partners to assist with these efforts.

Here are some other ways you can “Go Green” with the Kentucky Derby Festival:

1. Use recycling bins at at Festival events

2. Ride your bike to Thunder and Kroger’s Fest-a-Ville.

3. Carpool to Kentucky Derby Festival events.

4. Join the Kentucky Derby Festival and purchase Green Energy for your home or office, visit www.lge-ku.com/green.

LG&E GO GREEN Kid’s Activity!

To celebrate Earth Day, our GO GREEN Partner, LG&E and KU is sharing this cute Spring craft that’s a ‘bah-last’! 🐑
Why Sheep?
LG&E uses a flock of sheep as an all-natural lawn mower at their E.W. Brown solar facility! The sheep are from nearby Shaker Village of Pleasant Hill, and keeping the vegetation in check under and around their solar panels. Pretty cool!
