This year we are delighted to announce that Transition Corca Dhuibhne are launching the Festival Pack, with all you need to sample the delights of the Dingle Food Festival. Your pack will include a plate, bowl, cup and cutlery made from durable and reusable eco-friendly bamboo in an organic cotton carry bag. In an effort to reduce the plastic waste generated at the festival, Transition Corca Dhuibhne are pioneering this re-usable pack with funding from Kerry County Council. You can use the tableware at any of the food outlets and rinse stations are situated around the town for you to clean your dishes between tastings. This limited edition pack is available for just €10 at the festival office when you collect your book of tickets. If you don’t manage to get one, why not bring your own tableware to use at the festival? To further reduce our plastic waste, many vendors are using compostable containers and cutlery which can be reused or disposed of in the compost bins at each rinse station. Participating vendors will be awarded the green footprint logo so look out for stall holders and outlets with this logo. While our aim is to reduce waste completely, compostables will give us a helping hand on the road to becoming a zero waste festival. Together we can make our festival a greener one, join us and ‘be a taster, not a waster’.
The Dingle Food Festival wish to acknowledge the support of Kerry County Council sponsoring the use of compostable plates and forks at all taste trail outlets during the festival. The use of these products reduces the waste as they are composted after the festival and helps us make this a low carbon sustainable festival!
Many thanks to Dillon Waste & Recycling and KWD for providing sponsorship.
