We reduce event waste by eliminating single-use materials when possible, and prioritizing compostable and/or recyclable products.Vendors participating are required to hand out only compostable or recyclable materials to
the public. Vendors are not allowed to sell or give out any single-use plastic items, including packaging of items like swag. This includes drinks for sale by food vendors. We partner with Bellingham's very own Sustainable Connections to ensure we are doing our absolute best to keep our waste to the bare minimum. We had great success with this goal in 2019 and look forward to the same in the future.
