What is a Zero Waste Event?

A zero waste event follows sustainable practices to minimize or completely eliminate all waste sent to the landfill. We work with event partners and vendors to reach 90% diversion rates or higher.   The Living Coast provides guests with recycling and compost disposal options at our sorting stations. 

Why consider Zero Waste?DSC_1877

During events ranging from 50 to hundreds of guests, an average guest produces about 2.5 pounds of waste a day, which adds up to a lot of waste!  Often, limited disposal options are available to guests which means, most, if not all waste is sent to the landfill.   

Be a leader in your community and showcase that you are stewards of your environment!
