After what feels like a long hiatus events are back on and the Mullum Cares Sustainable Events team hit the ground running delivering a beautiful Wash Station operation at Renew Fest.

Preparations for the event included harnessing our partnership with the Global Ripple Op Shop in Byron who donated plates, forks, broken denim garments, sheets and doona covers and then kicked in $1500 to sponsor the Wash Station operation. Gratitude for these folk overflows.

The denim and doona covers were upcycled to make aprons, tea towels, napkins and table clothes, the sheets were dyed to make wrist bands and the plates and forks added to the stock of reusables in the Library of Stuff‘s waste free catering inventory.

The timing of Renew Fest was perfect as the Byron Shire Echo published its annual Sustainability Supplement the same week. We took the opportunity to promote our Waste Free Event services.

We are excited to announce that we will be partnering with Revolve Your World to deliver our services at the Byron Writers Festival Aug 6-8.
