DTE making lakeshore festival greener


For decades, art has been a driving force in Downtown Muskegon. The Lakeshore Art Festival continues that tradition with a unique blend of fine art, crafts, music, food, and fun along the scenic shoreline. This year’s event boasts a record-breaking number of talented artists, and as such, has expanded in size with exciting new features.

The DTE Energy Foundation believes in sustaining and protecting Michigan’s treasured natural resources  and to help build the state’s future. Their goal is to educate and assist West Michigan communities in achieving leading environmental outcomes through our support of environmental leadership that emphasize water quality, wildlife, air and recycling waste. 

 DTE’s environmental initiatives are helping to make the Lakeshore Art Festival greener. The DTE Energy Foundation partners with the Festival and Schupan Recycling to bring a comprehensive Recycling Program to the Festival.  

 Over the past four years, the DTE Energy Foundation’s recycling program at Lakeshore Art has helped to divert more than 5,000 pounds of waste from landfills.  Through the partnership, DTE has been able to recycle 929 pounds of plastic and aluminum. 

It’s all part of a statewide DTE Energy Foundation greening initiative that supports recycling at the Detroit Jazz Fest, the Grand JazzFest in Grand Rapids and the National Cherry Festival in Traverse City.
