By Fredrica Syren:

 Summer is festival season, and traditional festivals are not sustainable — and usually are really bad for the planet. The good news is that there are plenty of green and eco-friendly, even some zero-waste, festivals happening this summer. What could be better than a group of like-minded individuals gathering at a festival celebrating earth with good food, music and other fun activities?! Here is a list of my favorite festivals taking place this summer.
