It’s been over a year and a half since Greener Footprints started working with Ellen and the Hills Garlic Festival, and their efforts to reduce waste carry on! According to this year’s waste and recycling coordinator, the festival was much cleaner, and nearly half of all food vendors used compostable/biodegradable service items. Now, the organizers are considering mandating the use of these items, after 92% of vendors said they would be undeterred by such a policy! Not to mention, the garlic will love all that compost!
