Reuse & Recycle. Reduce waste to landfill.

This petition had 15 supporters

The event industry is the second highest contributor to landfill, construction is the first.

When we experience the gift of live music, the thrill of watching our favorite team play or a family outing to watch the fireworks - Why do we have to send an outrageous amount of waste to landfill to enjoy these great moments?

Australia has many large events, Sporting Events, Festivals, Concerts, Expos and our world class Food, Wine & Beer Festivals.
The Royal Easter Show is the 6th largest event in the world and the largest event in Australia attracting over 900,000 people a year.
This will send up to 2 million disposable beverage containers to landfill with in a 2 - week period, most probably in excess of 3 million.
An AFL Grand Final will attract over 100,000 people – that’s at least 100,000 disposable containers to landfill in one day.
These are just 2 events and already we have sent about 3 million disposable cups to landfill . . .

Reusable cups are being used in stadiums & festivals in Europe & Japan to great success.
Australia can start to do the same by integrating this system.
If we start to slowly integrate reusable cups with in 3 years we can significantly decrease our waste to landfill and help sustain a closed loop-recycling program that is efficient and an end to end solution.

Please sign this petition so we can start to make a positive change for great events.
