Climate Wave Enterprises are proud to announce that Wanderlust Sunshine Coast festival have secured our services to provide sustainable waste management for their celebration of mindful living and a zero waste event. We are stoked to be working with such an ethical organisation!
Wanderlust yoga, meditation, food and music festival takes place on October 20-23 at Novotel Twin Waters Resort, Sunshine Coast, Queensland, Australia.
Components of our sustainable waste management system:
Resource/Waste: Our Team members Greg Howell, Simon Witt & Monique Carole will induct our Eco Angel volunteers with guidelines & practices for attending our ZeroHero waste management stations, educating attendees while sorting the events waste accordingly for landfill, recycling and organics/compostables.
Normally, compostables and organics end up in landfill, not used to their full potential. The Eco Angel role is vitally important and there is still volunteer positions available in exchange for free passes to see the great lineup including Xavier Rudd, Dubarray & a multitude of activities, just contact the friendly Wanderlust Volunteer Coordinator for more information firstname.lastname@example.org
Earthborn have generously offered to take organic resource from Wanderlust and will introduce it to their Aerobic Composting Process.
They treat organics through numerous process and beneficially reuse. They create composts and customised soils/potting mix/growing media for all sorts of applications.
Over the last 12 months they’ve been developing a soil mix for Edible Gardening. They call it Living Blend. A completely natural, nutrient balanced, biodynamic soil with beneficial microbes. It’s designed specifically for raising fruit, veg & herbs.
There’s nothing like it on the market currently. Earthborn also have the ability to provide composted end product back to the initial waste generators site. The product is fantastic to recondition gardens, turf areas etc that might be impacted upon by the event.
For more information about Earthborn contact Ashleigh Brownlow, 0404 134 132
Resource/Waste service & collection:
Party Bins have again been secured to continue providing their meticulous service and going beyond and here’s an example. Chris Goldsworthy owner of Party Bins came to our rescue as opportunities to fully utilise our compostable resource came to a screaming halt when no companies or organisations were able to accommodate our needs. Here’s how Chris put the final pieces of our sustainable waste management system together.
“Have successfully sourced our local recipient for the compostable waste from Wanderlust, Twin Waters event, thanks to a referral from Penne at Worms Down Under who is also the manufacturer of the commercial composting machines OSCA . Earthborn Australia – Organic Recycling is a local business at Chevallum and no extra charges are required by Wanderlust to take up their offer above what I have already quoted.”
Yes, I’m sure you’ll agree he deserves a pat on the back!
