Event sustainability

We've been working really hard to make our events more sustainable.

Power

Our event generators are run on 100% biodiesel made from soy oil, which is a by-product of soybean processing. Biofuels are much better for the environment than petroleum diesel.

Bins

We have implemented new bin caps and clear signage to help people know which bin to place their waste.

Stalls

Our festival food stalls need to comply with strict guidelines to ensure that all plates, cups and cutlery are biodegradable.

Our stallholders have been advised that balloons are not permitted at the event as balloons and strings can cause harm to animals and marine life.

Promotional material and marketing

The event promotional material is printed without the use of water, with soy based inks on 100% recycled paper and cardstock. We re-use as much event signage as possible including laminated standard event signage and making dates generic on banners.

We also reduce printed materials by using our website, facebook page and e-newsletter to promote the event. 

Transport

A free shuttle bus will run from Gordon train station to the festival, reducing the amount of cars travelling to the event.
