The majority of waste produced at festivals and community events comes from disposable food and beverage containers. Green Dishes is a waste-reduction project designed to eliminate the need for disposable dishes at community events in Peterborough.
A non-profit dish-lending program that enables organizations to borrow large quantities of reusable dishes for community events. Organizations sign out dishes from OPIRG and return them cleaned and washed.
Green Dishes is a creative and unique initiative that reduces the quantity of waste generated at Peterborough community and campus events. A small fee and deposit* are required for borrowing.
We appreciate all the commitment of those in the community to reducing event-generated waste in Peterborough, and are happy to help out for future events!
We have sets of sorted cutlery (150x each), mugs & drinking glasses (200x each), large & small plates (200x each), and cases of bowls (150x).
For more information, or to request dishes for an event, please contact us at (705) 741-1208, firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
*Deposits are returned to borrowers provided the all the dishes borrowed are returned entact and clean.
