“We have been able to deliver these results through our ‘Green Loop’ program, which offers end to end sustainable solutions for events, and is a program that played a crucial role in Adelaide Green Clean winning the SA Business of the Year at the Telstra Business Awards on Tuesday night.”
The collected waste from the 2016 WOMADelaide festival is converted to organic mulch by Adelaide business Jeffries, who, in collaboration with Adelaide Green Clean and WOMADelaide, will deliver 16 tonnes of Jeffries Recover Mulch to the Botanic Gardens of South Australia. Botanic Gardens of South Australia Acting Director, Janice Goodwins, said WOMADelaide’s 2016 festival reinforced its lofty environmental credentials and put it a step closer to the zero-waste-to-landfill milestone.
“Like the Gardens, WOMADelaide is steadfast in its commitment to protecting the environment, and we’re pleased that festivalgoers’ waste will again be returned to Botanic Park’s soil to enrich our world-class living collections,” Ms Goodwins said.
Sustainable waste management is an important part of the operating considerations of WOMADelaide and the Botanic Gardens of South Australia, and Adelaide Green Clean works with the festival and festival patrons to further develop the ‘zero-waste-to-landfill’ solution to WOMADelaide by diverting waste away from landfill and into sustainable pathways.
