In 2015, the Lobero became Santa Barbara’s first Green Business-certified historic building and theatrical venue, and we want to continue to build on that momentum. Tackling an issue like single use cups seems like a great place to go next. Since the Lobero features live performances with concessions almost 200 nights per year, creating a possibility for thousands of single-use cups to be thrown away. Just like bringing your own bag to the store or mug to the coffee shop; now we invite you to bring your reusable cup whenever you head out to see live music at your favorite Santa Barbara venues.
The Lobero Theatre is a Santa Barbara County Green Business. To earn the certification, the Lobero Theatre has implemented solutions to improve efficiency in electricity, water use, and implement a sustainable transportation plan staff members. This certification marks several years of gradual changes to ensure environmentally safe practices at the Lobero Theatre, including the City of Santa Barbara’s Recycling and Foodscraps Recycling Programs requiring the use of compostable and biodegradable plates, flatware and paper products at all Lobero events, concessions and receptions.

In order to earn this certification, the Lobero went through a thorough review and implemented solutions to improve efficiency in electricity, water use, as well as a sustainable transportation plan for staff members. All of these improvements were introduced in a way that was compatible with our historic aesthetic and corporate culture.
We’ve been working on reducing our carbon footprint for several years. In 2011 the Lobero became the first theatrical business to join the City of Santa Barbara’s Recycling and Composting Programs. Then, 2013’s Encore: Lobero renovations brought in eco-friendly updates including: low-flow toilets, drought tolerant landscaping and energy-efficient electrical systems throughout. Last year, thanks to House Manager Daniel Ramirez, we ramped up efforts to reduce electricity and water use–which included changing hundreds of light bulbs, updating any remaining antique plumbing fixtures, implementing an Employee Transportation Plan–we even changed to eco-friendly cleaning products!
“We view efforts to reduce our carbon footprint as not only our social responsibility, but also as a way to decrease long term operational costs and increase the viability and comfort of the building. It’s good for everyone.” – David Asbell, Executive Director
The Lobero is conscious of its lasting presence in the Santa Barbara community, and views adapting sustainable practices as a practical and advantageous way to ensure the vitality of the theatre long into the future.
