La Onda strives to become one of the most sustainable festivals by increasing compost, decreasing landfill waste and eliminating single use plastic, in partnership with MCE.


La Onda does not permit single use plastics in all areas of the festival and company offices.

La Onda will provide free touchless water stations located throughout the festival site. Bring your empty reusable water bottle (disposable plastic/glass not permitted) to fill up on-site and stay hydrated!


We are using reusable glasses for our delicious wine program. By using a reusable wine glass, it helps us eliminate 55,000 single use wine glasses.


At La Onda, we use primarily vacuum flushing toilets.  Using these toilets uses 90% less water than traditional toilets.

Using flushable vs. traditional port-o-potties eliminates the “blue chemical” deodorizers made from formaldehyde, toxic to humans and harsh to the environment.


We work in partnership with Sunbelt and Moxion Power to provide 3 mobile energy storage units to provide clean power for use at the festival.

We also work with Neste MY Renewable Diesel to have Diesel Direct‘s carbon neutral fleet of trucks deliver renewable fuel directly to BottleRock’s generators, light towers and ground support equipment.

Utilizing renewable diesel supports our sustainability goals significantly by reducing harmful pollutants and using 100% sustainably sourced materials.

We also commit to 100% LED lights for onsite lighting. Through powering 75% of our festival with non-generator-based power, La Onda is committed to reducing its carbon footprint even further in years to come!

Compostables + Recycling

Across the La Onda site, we use BPI certified compostable or plant fiber beverage and service ware. All materials can be fully composted at Napa Recycling and Waste Management.

We recycle cardboard, pallets, plastic wrap, construction debris, astro turf and even wine corks.


Food Donations + Closing the Loop

La Onda works year-round to improve our environmental sustainability and reduce waste.

Introducing: BottleRock Upcycle – the post-festival donations and upcycling program.

The goal of this program is to identify and collect leftover or unwanted materials and redistribute them for reuse in the Napa Valley community.

We work directly with Feeding it Forward on all perishable and nonperishable food donations. Feed it Forward donates the food to the Napa Foodbank, local school and the community as a whole.

Sheep Power

We’re further improving our sustainable practices with the help of sheep! Instead of using gas-powered machinery to clear festival parking areas, we’re employing a more eco-friendly approach to eat away at the grass.
