The majority of waste produced as festivals and community events comes from disposable food and beverage containers. Green Dishes is a waste-reduction program designed to eliminate the need for disposable dishes at community and campus events in the Peterborough/Nogojiwanong area. Organizations sign out dishes from OPIRG Peterborough and return them cleaned and washed for a small fee.
Our program includes sets of sorted cutlery (200x each), mugs (200x each) and drinking glasses (100x each), large and small plates (300x each), and bowls (100x).
We appreciate all the commitment of those in the community to reducing event-generated waste by making their event eco-friendly!
