VidCon is committed to improving our production and lowering our carbon footprint every year. This means that each time you come back, hopefully, you’ll see less waste, more reuse, and more conversation around everyday sustainable practices. But we need your help to go further! Can you join us on our sustainability mission in 2024? 

We already have the following practices in place at VidCon Anaheim: 

  • An event-wide environmental statement and mission 
  • A comprehensive recycling program across the convention center and hotels 
  • Food and beverage waste reduction via fewer single-use plastic items, smaller orders for parties and lounges, and donating suitable food items to local charities or food banks
  • Repurposing old banners into upcycled merch and furniture, diverting them from the landfill
  • Donating reusable materials from sponsor builds to local organizations
  • Decreasing our orders for single-use items like conference guides and badges 
  • Improved data collection specific to waste, electrical, water usage, and carbon emissions at the Anaheim Convention Center

At VidCon Anaheim 2023, we produced over 50 tons of waste — most of which goes into landfill. We are committed to bringing this number down significantly over time, but we definitely need your help to get there!  

Take the steps toward a greener VidCon with us!


  • Take only what you need, especially food, paper products, and event swag like conference guides.
  • Opt for plant-based snacks and meals. 
  • Bring a water bottle with you to VidCon to refill at the convention center.
  • Carpool with friends to the convention center or back to your hotels.
  • Visit the activations in the Expo Hall and all around the event from sponsors who’ve committed to joining us on this sustainability journey.
  • Share how you are living green before, during, and after VidCon and tag @VidCon.
