Transitions to Less Waste at Canterbury Festival a Success!

IDNC’s participation at Transition to Less Waste’s washing station at Ingersoll’s Canterbury Folk Festival (July 12-14) helped reduce waste in the community – happy volunteers washed over 1500 plates, keeping more waste out of the local landfill.  Thanks to Rachel Egan and Emily Cude for spearheading this innovative initiative!  Heating water through solar power, the washing station is geared to clean plates and cutlery for patron’s use from festival-sponsored food events and retail vendors, as well as add an educational component on recycling and waste reduction.  For more information, go to http://transitiontolesswaste.org/.
