We’re going Zero Waste at the festival this year! We’ll be composting, recycling and donating our way through another great event.
What is Zero Waste?
The goal of a Zero Waste is to reduce the amount of resources and food waste used at the festival. We’ve included resource reduction into the planning of the festival, educated our vendors on acceptable serviceware, and are offering our vendors resources to recycle or donate their post-event waste. We’ve also incorporated resource recovery and waste stations stations throughout the event so that our festival attendees can easily and properly dispose of any waste (also see What You Can Do Below).
What Our Vendors Will Do
- Offer only compostable dish and flatware and drinkware.
- Donate unused, unsaleable food to our event partner, Shepherd’s Table following the event.
- Recycle/compost food and paperware that cannot be donated.
- Recycle any cardboard boxes used to transport their products in our cardboard recycling station, post event.
Festival Attendees – What You Can Do
- Bring your own refillable water bottle – we’ll have a water bottle refill station located at the event.
- Bring your own drinkware and seviceware.
- Follow the instructions of our 3 part waste receptacles located throughout the festival which will be separated by Recycling (plastic and cans), Composting (food waste and compostable packaging) and Garbage (landfill-bound – let’s minimize this!)
