It is so important to be aware of our impact on the planet when organising events like this. This is how we have tried to keep this event zero waste and we would love your feedback and support where possible.
E-Tickets We got sustainable by going digital without tickets through using Eventbrite. Have your ticket OR code ready for us to check your tickets or showing us the email confirmation of your ticket is enough for us.
E- Marketing We endeavored to spread the world about this event through word of mouth and electronically! Social media tools have made it easier than ever to keep you up-to-date. If you saw an article or information about us in print, please make sure you recycle the paper its on. We have also only used details on any marketing prints so that they can be stored and reused. We have also chosen not to decorate the room with anything that will be wasted and hope you appreciate the natural beauty of the views out the window and the surrounding town.
E-Timetables: We have produced all the timetables on pdf for you to download or simply go to the website to remind you of what is on where on the day. We will not be printing timetables to hand out on the day.
Getting around: There are many different ways of getting to Kinsale. We hope that you will consider those ways that leave the smallest impact on the planet. If you can car share, take the bus (local link or bus to cork), walk or even cycle (hopefully the weather will work in our favour!) to the event it will all add up!
Working with our vendors We have asked our vendors to be conscious of packaging their goods responsibly and please bring a bag with you if you intend to do some shopping in the town or in the marketplace. We have also asked the venue to only use glass and ceramic when serving drinks and no plastic straws. We would love it if you enforce this by asking when you order too.
Plastic protocol. Please try to respect our zero waste efforts by bringing a keep cup or water bottle with you. Especially if you intend to buy a drink from outside the venue. You can even bring a box if you want to bring food in from outside. Be sure to write your name on your re-usable items so you take them home with you!
Organise the compost/recycling. Please try to take our recyclables and compost ready items home with you to responsibly dispose of these items.
Water is life! You will be able to refill your bottles from any of our participating food and drink businesses in Kinsale plus at the bar in the marketplace.
