Composting with Edinburgh Food Festival

Earlier this year we were delighted to partner with Edinburgh Food Festival!

The festival took place over 10 days at Assembly George Square Gardens beginning on the 21st July. Marking this year’s edition, Edinburgh Food Festival announced a host of measures in order to be more sustainable.

STACK-CUP™ to provided a reusable cup scheme and we provided the compostable packaging.

The festival also joined Close the Loop composting collections for central belt Scotland. This meant that used Vegware and food waste could be collected and turned into high-grade compost in under 12 weeks.

It is a testament of how reusables and compostables can work together for a more sustainable foodservice.

“Looking after the environment and caring for the climate is one of the most important issues of our age. As organisers of the Edinburgh Food Festival, we are constantly mindful of the impact we are having on the habitat around us. Our partnership with Vegware and STACK-CUP™ this year is a natural next step as we continue to look for new ways to reduce the environmental footprint of all our festivals and events.”
