Creating a sustainable event

Hand sorting waste demonstrated Canberra Time Night Noodle Markets’s commitment to a sustainable event. By separating materials, higher rates of repurposing, composting and recycled were achieved.

Daily packaging audits were also conducted to establish which products were common on site and how they should be correctly disposed of. This process also helped to asses what packaging restrictions would be best to implement at future events in the ACT.
