Sustainability

In the interest of health and safety, the 2021 event will take place entirely outdoors.

Sustainability Mission: We are committed to producing a sustainable, zero waste event. We work to minimize waste and educate our vendors and customers in our sustainability efforts. We provide a free, open “zone” of our Street Fair to educate the public regarding local sustainability efforts.

Visit the Sustainability Zone

Join GPHC and our partners in the Sustainability Zone on the Parkway at 19th and Forest, where we will have free giveaways, local sustainability partners talking about how you can reduce your ecological footprint, and three sustainability demonstrations at noon, two, and four. We’ll have information regarding graywater, beekeeping, sustainable transit, rain barrels, and other projects for you to learn about at no cost. Bring your kiddos and come have a great time for a great cause!

FREE Electronics Recycling

FREE Electronics Recycling

GPHC is partnering with PCs for People to provide FREE electronics recycling! Drop-off will be located at 17th and Forest (west side). They will accept nearly anything computer-related for free. CRT (tube) computer monitors and televisions can be recycled for 55 cents per pound. Our goal is to make it easy and fun for you to keep your items out of the landfill. So, bring your all those obsolete and broken electronics that are taking up space in your home, and then enjoy the Street Fair!

Certifiably Green Denver

Certifiably Green Denver

The Park Hill Home Tour & Street Fair participates in Certifiably Green Denver(CGD) which implements a green event certification process for permitted events held on City property. The primary goals of the program are to increase participation and adoption of sustainable practices to minimize use of hazardous materials, improve energy efficiency and water conservation, and decrease the use of resources and generation of waste.

Sustainable Neighborhoods Program

Sustainable Neighborhoods Program

Greater Park Hill Community participates in Denver’s Sustainable Neighborhoods Program giving residents the opportunity to become active partners in making Denver a vibrant and sustainable community. Neighborhoods participating in this unique certification program organize workshops, projects, and events that enhance the livability of their neighborhood and reduce residents’ ecological footprint. The sustainability effort for the Park Hill Home Tour & Street Fair is part of our work towards achieving sustainable neighborhood status.

Drinking Water

Drinking Water
