Shell NZ Zero waste
Brought to you by Shell New Zealand
Zero Waste is a powerful concept that challenges old ways of thinking and inspires new attitudes and behaviour. It is a multi-faceted approach, integrating the four R's of waste minimisation (reduce, reuse, recycle and rethink), to conserve the Earth's limited resources.
WOMAD is committed to ensuring the event is not only a spectacular celebration of international culture, sound and sight, but also becomes an example of environmental sustainability success! We are actively encouraging and assisting ALL involved in WOMAD (from the artists performing to the public attending), to share in and contribute to this goal.
Why Zero Waste?
WOMAD NZ is committed to reducing the amount of rubbish it sends to landfill.
Less rubbish means saved resources, longer lasting and fewer landfills.
Fewer landfills mean more space, and better air and water quality.
Zero Waste is all about caring for our environment now, so that future generations can also enjoy our beautiful world.
How you can help
In order to achieve our waste minimisation target, all food and drink products sold, throughout the event, will be served in recyclable, reusable, biodegradable or compostable containers.
Please use the bins correctly to ensure all materials are recycled or composted.
IT’S EASY to be ‘GREEN’ at WOMAD!
Look for the Green Team who will assist you with waste disposal.
Recycling stations are spread all over the festival site
