What is a Zero Waste Event?
The planning committee, volunteers and vendors worked diligently to make the Oak Park Micro Brew Review a Zero Waste event. Thought was put into everything that would be needed to host this event, and efforts were made to reuse existing materials; source recycled content, recyclable or compostable new materials; and prevent waste from ending in the landfill. All of the food scraps, plates, napkins and spoons were composted. Patrons helped make this event a Zero Waste success by utilizing the Resource Recovery Stations to dispose of used items. Each station had four receptacles for different waste categories: Compostables, Recyclables, Liquids, and Landfill. Volunteers were located at each station to assist with the sorting process and to answer any questions.
For future reference: Zero Waste isn’t just for events. This practice can follow you to your home and business. With a little extra effort, you can begin to move toward zero waste. Contact Seven Generations Ahead if you would like to learn more:
