Take Note Initiative

Visit the official Les Schwab Amphitheater website at Bend Concerts for the full summer lineup each season.

The Les Schwab Amphitheater’s Take Note Initiative is a sustainability initiative designed to reduce waste and make the amphitheater a more environmentally friendly venue. Take Note Initiative elements include reusable pint and cocktail drinkware from Silipint, compostable cups, no single-use plastic bottles for sale and a water filtration station. Recycling, waste management and composting services are provided at each concert.

Thanks to our sustainability initiatives the Amphitheater successfully cut its total waste in half over the past two years. More than 50 percent of the total waste from the 2016, 2017 and 2018 concert seasons was successfully diverted from landfills. At the Amphitheater, single-use plastic water bottles and plastic drink cups are a thing of the past.

Join us for our fourth year of making the Les Schwab Amphitheater a community model of sustainability. All our beverage cups, plates and utensils used by food vendors are 100% certified compostable.

Bring your own re-usable canteen or water bottle to re-fill at our free filtered water station. Water canteens are also available for purchase. Look for our colorful water filtration system and additional drinking fountains throughout the venue.

Purchase a reusable limited-edition LSA Silipints for beer and cider, or the Silipint base cups for wine or cocktails for $20. Your first beverage is included in this price. Get $1 off each additional drink purchase all summer long. We are honoring all 2016, 2017 and 2018 Silipints for the 2019 concerts season. LSA Silipints and Silipint Base cups are available at the concierge tent and the bar at each concert.

In 2014, Jack Johnson’s AllatOnce.org movement helped launch a sustainability program which has inspired venues across the country to follow suit, including the Les Schwab Amphitheater’s Take Note Initiative.
