Greening of the Festivals
Greening of Festivals
A coalition of organizers from the various Victoria Park festivals such as Sunfest, Home County Folk Festival and RibFest championed a waste reduction strategy spearheaded by Waste Free World, a working group of TREA, and the City to reduce the environmental impact festivals generate in waste. The coalition began in 2007 and now includes all events held in the park.
Attendees are encouraged to bring their own dishes and refillable water containers, make use of the reusable dish stations at events where applicable, and utilize the numerous Ecostations for composting and recycling.
Ecostations require a large number of volunteer hours and citizens are encouraged to help by signing up as a volunteer by contacting TREA at firstname.lastname@example.org. This is a great opportunity for high school students to earn their volunteer hours throughout the summer.
