The Rotary Club of Eltham is working closely with stallholders this year to continue to move the festival towards being an environmentally friendly and sustainable event. Stallholders are not allowed to use single use plastic bags and event goers are encouraged and reminded to bring bags with them, especially for shopping at the festival market.

Stallholders are also being strongly encouraged not to use plastic straws or balloons as many of them end up in local waterways and being ingested by wildlife.

People coming to the festival are encouraged to bring their own water bottles and to reduce waste to landfill by using the recycling bins provided on-site.
