-WASTE: BIFF supports The City of Boulder’s Zero Waste initiative! We ask your help in sending at least 85% of attendee waste to compost and recycling, while sending a maximum of 15% to the landfill. Check out these pointers on how and where to dispose of what you use.
-TRANSPORTATION: consider using a bicycle, the bus, or your own two feet! BIFF is conveniently located right in the heart of Downtown Boulder, and The Hop is cost-free to BIFF ticket holders, pass holders and volunteers. Spare yourself the hassles of heavy traffic, finding parking, and paying for a space. Get in those steps instead! Or enjoy the many bike lanes Boulder has to offer instead! If an automobile is still your choice, consider carpooling with neighbors or family members. We hope you’ll consider a contribution to minimizing BIFF’s carbon footprint.
