Here’s what some of our exhibitors are showcasing at the Green Heart Fair at Chermside on 3 June. Exhibitor applications are still open until May 18 for Brisbane’s biggest sustainable living festival, presented by CitySmart on behalf of Brisbane City Council.
The Cleanaway Waste Zone offers an engaging educational experience for both adults and kids. Their new trucks will be on show, and recycling education will include demonstrations and samples that show what happens to recycling material after it leaves the yellow wheelie bins. This July, Cleanaway will be commencing a new contract with Brisbane City Council to manage Brisbane’s four Resource Recovery Centres.
Queensland Urban Utilities (QUU)
CitySmart partner QUU will own the Water Zone. Displays will include their brilliant comparison demo of what happens to wet wipes versus regular toilet paper when flushed down the loo (the paper disintegrates, the wet wipes don’t and end up clogging the sewers). QUU will also be championing free water refills and giving out reusable bottles on the day, in line with the Green Heart Fair’s ban on the sale of single-use plastic bottled water.
Our partner Rocky Point will own the new Grow Zone at Green Heart Fair. It seems everyone has a gardening question and the Grow Zone will include a comprehensive exhibit by Rocky Point to help Brisbane residents plan, plant and maintain the right type of garden to suit their property and the climate. The Grow Zone will show the benefits of planning your garden, including water conservation and lower costs (e.g. dry tolerant plants), as well as tips on plant choice and choosing the right type of mulch.
Love Food, Hate Waste
Brisbane City Council’s fabulous Love Food Hate Waste program will be joining in the fun with the fair’s Food Zone. Celebrity chef Matt Golinski will be on hand to show us how to use food more sustainably – how to shop, prepare and store your food, as well as waste management options such as composting.
But wait, there’s more!
The Live for Less zone will feature expert talks and stalls on sustainable living for all households, while the Move for Less outdoor transport expo will be taking transport to the next level, showcasing low cost and sustainable transport options including electric and hybrid vehicles.
