  3. 3. Encouraged by this year's success and the public's current enthusiasm for plastic free events, we are deciding to go plastic free in the next event. We need your support & suggestions to make this happen. We have drafted the following “Plastic Free Events Policy” to achieve our goal and there can be additional revenue streams for you by promoting and selling plastic free alternatives. We would love to run this policy by you before we put this down in the contract and we would appreciate your feedback and support before we make the policy official. What do you think? For our next event, we will be banning the sale of - Plastic water or drinks bottle onsite. The vendors may promote and sell reusable bottles and we shall provide water fountains. The vendors can still use aluminum/ glass cans. - Single use plastic cups - Plastic straws. If your product requires a straw, please use plastic free straws like paper straws etc. - Balloons, Glitter - Plastic Bags. The vendors are encouraged to promote and sell reusable bags - Single Use Sauce Sachets - Please use only compostable serve ware e.g. plates, knives, forks, bowls, boxes, cup lids etc. Please avoid Polystyrene/ Styrofoam and other biodegradable packaging and use only compostable packaging for food. - Please avoid use of unnecessary plastic packaging, marketing & infrastructure materials while setting up your shop. It would be great to reuse wristbands, display signs, badges etc. Avoid Cable Ties - We would appreciate if you would be able to incentivize the festival attendees to bring their own reusable containers by providing them discounts and other offers #PlasticFreeEvent – Simple Catering/ Vendor Policy © 2018 National Plastic Collective, more info at @dhruvboruah v3
