Green Team Assemble!
Devour the World, our globe trotting food festival, is fast approaching!
Devour the World is one of our signature Local First events with hundreds of folks in attendance and we have been working hard to reduce our waste footprint and educate patrons since its inception. Our goal this year is to divert 50% of the waste to recycling and reuse. We have not and cannot do this without you! We are looking for 10 volunteers for a short, 5 hour, shift to help us divert waste and educate attendees on sustainability! There is so much opportunity to learn what is and is not recyclable, learn about the life cycle of some of the products and interact with people who appreciate what you are doing.
We have the current slots open and available:
Bin Guarders (looking for 10!):
A bin guarder stands in front of three bins, a landfill, a compost and a recycling bin and instructs people which bins their waste should go in. If someone makes a mistake, you simply reach in and pop it over into the correct bin. We have discovered that by simply having this person here momentously increases our diversion rate. We will have a training session prior to the event to teach you what is and is not recyclable, how to chat with people about sustainability and more! Our stations will now have an umbrella for shade!
right here, right now
to jump in and have some fun! Indicate that you are interested in the “Green Team” and we will be in touch!
