We’ve made a big commitment at Parramatta Lanes to reduce our single-use waste footprint.
Reusable Plastic – We’re teaming up with Globelet to provide all our bars with reusable cups, and make sure no single use plastic will be available on-site.
That means no single use bottles will be available for purchase and no plastic straws will be handed out.
Don’t forget to BYO water bottle and refill at one of our Sydney Water stations.
NSW Waste Less, Recycle More Initiative:
Thanks to the support of the Environmental Protection Authority NSW Waste Less, Recycle More Initiative we’re able to present two major installations at the festival to encourage our audience to think more about their waste impact.
Message in a Bottle, Paper Moose – Batman Walk
Message in a Bottle demonstrates the real consequences of plastics making their way into our waterways and ultimately damaging our beautiful aquatic ecosystems. Focussing on the life of the native Eastern Blue Groper as an example, the light-art installation aims to inspire the audience to stop and reflect on the issue, and consider their impact and the correct disposal of waste, both at the festival and in their daily lives.
The artwork has been handcrafted from upcycled plastics, collected through collaboration with local cafes, government organisations and many generous volunteers.
Love Birds, Zara Pasfield – Red Cow Lane
Love Birds represents a community coming together as one to reduce our personal plastic waste. Suspended in a colourful canopy above the laneway, the birds take flight in the wind with the dynamic message of positive personal action.
Love Birds invites the audience to pledge to reduce their plastic waste while creating a vibrant and dynamic artwork. Participants are encouraged to share their pledge via social media, sending the message out into the wider community.
