Park City has added numerous recycling canisters all over the city. Brita will be passing out Brita filtered water bottles and will also have water stations throughout the city. There will be no programs, you can access all theater information and times through on an online guide and those with I Phones will have an application they can download. All Sundance merchandise will be repurposed, recycled, or reusable, in an effort to minimize carbon footprint.
