As we all become more aware of our impact on the environment there has been a desire by many to reduce our individual wastage and lessen our own contributions to landfill. This weekend an innovative new festival event will look to connect the environmentally conscious members of society with the change-makers who are shaking up the traditional linear economy of plastics, textiles and organic waste streams.
Looped Festival will shine a light on the practical tools and services available for us all to transition to a less wasteful, and more meaningful lifestyle.
“Looped will be an entertaining and educational festival with workshops, art, recycled goods and music, for Sydneysiders of all ages that are concerned about the environment, want to learn more and do their part,” explained Seaside Scavenge CEO & Founder, Anna Jane Linke. “Most of the products we use in our day-to-day activities (or lives) have not been designed with their end-of-life in mind and that’s why most of it ends up in landfill. But that’s not the way it has to be. Everyone has the power to shift from this linear economy (take > make > dispose) to a circular economy where we make > use > return, over and over again.”
Looped Festival is all about teaching people how we can:
design out waste and pollution;
keep products and materials in use for longer and;
most importantly regenerate natural systems.
Attendees will receive two ‘Trash Tokens’ with every ticket to spend on products at the festival.
