Zero Waste Event Services
A “Zero Waste Event” engages in the Zero Waste philosophy by reducing waste in terms of purchasing, usage and disposal of resources before, during and after an event. Zero Waste is a philosophy that seeks to maximize the recovery of resources we commonly throw away in our everyday lives. Much of what we call waste, or our discards, are potential resources for new products. Zero Waste Events practices aim to first minimize the production of discards, second direct the discards we have to reuse, recycling or composting and finally to manage what we have left as responsibly as possible. Aggressive Zero Waste Event strategies can recover the resource value of more than 90% of what is discarded. This involves detailed and systematic planning before an event to ensure all of the material is sourced in a sustainable manner and is able to be reused, recycled or composted.
