Waste Management, Inc. is a leading provider of integrated environmental solutions in North America. 

Waste Management is the largest environmental solutions provider in North America, serving more than 21 million municipal, commercial and industrial customers in the U.S. and Canada. We have invested in developing waste solutions for a changing world. Today, this includes not just disposal and recycling, but personal counseling to help customers achieve their green goals, including zero waste.

Waste Management is North America’s largest residential recycler and a renewable energy provider. We recover the naturally occurring gas inside landfills to generate electricity, called landfill-gas-to-energy. Waste Management’s fleet of natural gas trucks is the largest heavy-duty truck fleet of its kind in North America. With the largest network of recycling facilities, transfer stations and landfills in the industry, our entire business can adapt to meet the needs of every distinct customer segment.

As North America’s leading provider of comprehensive waste management services, our mission is to maximize resource value while minimizing impact in order to further both economic and environmental sustainability for all of our stakeholders.

Arizona Vegan Education Group is a 100% volunteer-run 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to the promotion of a plant-based lifestyle & prevention of all animal abuse. 


Our organization is based in Phoenix, Arizona, but we are focused on spreading the awareness to the power of a vegan lifestyle throughout Arizona. We also aim to help support others in their transition toward, or continued effort in, making lifestyle choices that are healthier, more sustainable for the planet, and above all, more compassionate towards all sentient species.

  Why is SW VegFest so AWESOME?

What makes Southwest VegFest different? We are the only 100% non-profit VegFest in the region. The event is put on by members of the local community and SW VegFest is also 100% FREE to the community. We want everyone to be able to enjoy an event that is all about celebrating, collaborating, and learning how we can help animals, significantly lessen our impact on the environment, and improve our overall health. The festival brings together local businesses, nonprofits, and individuals committed to creating a more compassionate, sustainable, and healthy community.

As a small non-profit organization, we encourage and appreciate donations to keep this festival FREE.
