-- From events like Foxtail Fest, that promote social responsibility, Millennials, those between the ages of 16 and 35, are showing that they are more socially aware than any other generation. On September 14, 2013 thousands of Millennials flocked to Wilmington, Delaware for the first annual Foxtail Fest. This music festival supports sustainability and promotes social responsibility and taking care of the environment. Even down to the choice to use In Ticketing to process the tickets was a decision that was made with the environment in mind. In Ticketing offers ticket purchasers the chance to plant a tree while purchasing tickets to Foxtail Fest.
Many festivals like Foxtail Fest
are starting up around the country and they are driven by the Millennial, or Generation Y, youth.

By having sponsors like Boxed Water and providing information and places to recycle, Millennials are using events like Foxtail Fest to spread the word about creating a better future for the environment.
From the choice to use a company called In Ticketing, that will plant one tree for every ticket sold to the use of certified organic pre shrunk cotton tee shirts, Foxtail Fest is showing how to be environmentally friendly. One of the sponsors of Foxtail Fest
this year is Boxed Water, which has replaced plastic bottles with recyclable boxes instead. The organizers of Foxtail Fest have ensured that plenty of recycling bins will be available all over the festival grounds. Millennials have made an effort in every aspect to promote taking care of the environment.
Sandy Clower, an environmental activist and Millennial, has attended many events that promote taking care of the planet. "I believe that events like Foxtail Fest showcase the values that most Millennials hold. We have seen the damage done by paste generations and know that it is our responsibility to leave the world a better place for future generations. In attending Foxtail Fest
and supporting the musicians and sponsors of these events we can and will change the world." This sentiment is shared by many of the Millennial generation. They have been watching as the Earth has been polluted with plastic and toxins and see music festivals like Foxtail Fest as a way to spread awareness about the growing problem of pollution and environmental destruction. But this generation does not just complain about the problem, they are making a difference. By educating other generations about recycling and planting trees they are helping fix the problems that previous generations have caused. Foxtail Fest and festivals like it are spreading the word that this generation will not stand by and let the earth be destroyed.
