As a sustainable living festival, we encourage all attendees to each do their bit to reduce our environmental impact while celebrating the gift of life the Earth provides us. This year we’re aiming to reduce our collective environmental impact by working towards a zero-waste festival.
All food stalls will be using either washable crockery and cutlery or biodegradable/compostable single-use items. So please help our Waste Management Team volunteers by returning your dirty dishes and cups to the washing up station at the Chai Cafe. We also welcome you to BYO if you wish to use your own plate, cutlery, mug, etc. There will be a place provided for you to wash them up.
Also, to minimise plastic waste, there will be no bottled water sold. Single use plastic bottled water is a massive waste of embedded energy and not necessary with a bit of forethought. Please BYO a re-usable water bottle or cup. We will have water refill stations around the site where you can top up all day. We appreciate your support in caring for our Planet.
Caloundra Music Festival are claiming they will be the first Australian event to make the move to zero-waste later this year. However, we know Renew Fest recently achieved it and now we will too. Let’s show the bigger festivals that it’s possible to party and be responsible citizens of Earth at the same time.
