    Waste Reduction Initiative

    Country Celebration is striving to become a Zero Waste event and a leader in waste reduction. We encourage all vendors and exhibitors to help us achieve this goal. Our success is dependent on your cooperation and participation.

    Here are just a few ideas on how exhibitors and vendors can help reduce waste at the event.

    Commonly used material Alternative
    Plastic bagsEncourage visitors to use re-useable tote bags.
    Promotional and educational literature Have display copies and encourage visitors to use the internet to access them at home.
    Paper handoutsBe discretionary about the quantity and size of handouts you provide e.g. business cards instead of brochures. Use paper with recycled content.
    Wrapping paperUse newspaper and other paper packing material. Avoid the use of plastic and Styrofoam.
    Single serve, individually wrapped candies Avoid excessive packaging. Try interactive low waste incentives to attract audiences such as games or prize draws.
    Children’s craft suppliesRe-use old items rather than new e.g. off-cuts, discards, misprints and over-stock.


    To further discuss the Zero Waste goals, share your own creative waste reduction ideas, and ask any questions you might have:
