We'll be there to keep you hydrated with reusable water bottles

Local First Arizona is excited to sponsor the water station at this year's Sedona Winefest, focusing efforts on promoting both the local message and sustainability. Stop by to say hello to the Northern Arizona team while you pick up your complementary reusable water bottle, complete with a fun "drink local" message. We've got you covered will all the fresh, filtered water needed to keep you hydrated for the wine tasting event of the year. With clean, crisp water right on site, you can also refill these or your own bottles brought from home.  Event planners anticipate saving the use of at least 1,200 non-reusable plastic bottles with this sustainable addition to the Winefest and we couldn't be happier to take part!

Partnering on this project by supplying the reusable water bottles is Sedona Marketing Retreats and Yuloff Creative Marketing Solutions - a local marketing and consulting firm that supports entrepreneurs at every level.  Equally as important, the Yuloffs are huge supporters of the local movement.
