We’re bursting onto the sustainability scene this year by hosting Singapore’s first comprehensive sustainability festival: EarthFest! We’re here to inspire and empower people to make a sustainable future possible through fun, interaction, entertainment and positivity! We’re going to have a food fair of delicious planet-friendly foods, a Farmer’s Market featuring local businesses doing things more sustainably, an edutainment area where the education is engaging, as well as other various opportunities like workshops, screenings, etc. There will be something for all ages and interests - all packaged in one of the most sustainable and beautiful venues in the world: Marina Barrage!
So are we really serious about sustainability? This is how we’ll stand apart: Our food fair will be using 100% compostable materials - and we’ll actually compost it! The food is all planet-friendly requiring less water, land, and food inputs to produce while still being delicious and healthy (and from some of Singapore most highly rated restaurants!) Vendors won’t give you plastic bags - you have to bring your own or buy a reusable one! They can’t even give out printed pamphlets - they have to do digital distribution! And all that haze we’ve been breathing in? Well that’s due to palm oil - so it’s banned at EarthFest! More than that we’re the first comprehensive sustainability festival that unites many organisations together at once. You’ll have access to information on fair trade, buying local, organic, responsible investing, planet-friendly and healthy food, transportation, biodegradability, non-toxic, overfishing, waste, electricity usage, water (including virtual!) and much, much more! Most importantly, we’ll inspire you with the effective ways you can make changes to really make a sustainable and modern future possible! You’ll be surprised by what changes are actually effective and how many resources there are in Singapore to make it happen!
