This first-time festival is all about the circular economy — and features educational workshops, live music and an onsite thrift shop.
'Reduce, reuse and recycle' isn't just a catchy slogan. It's a sensible way to help diminish humanity's impact upon the planet — and it's one of the key ideas behind Little Bay's new Looped Festival. Across three socially distanced sessions on Sunday, November 29 (at 10am–12pm, 12–2pm and 2–4pm), this event will focus on the circular economy in a big way, and on getting rid of waste via a range of tactics in the process.
Taking place at the Prince Henry Centre, the fest is run by Sydney-based not-for-profit organisation Seaside Scavenge — who are dedicated to shifting from a disposable-driven economy to one where items are made, used, and then reused over and over again. That's their year-round point of focus, but this one-day event will let Sydneysiders chat with folks trying to make the circular economy a reality, including across plastics, textiles and organic waste.
As part of your $10 ticket, attendees will learn about the practical tools and services available to help you reduce waste. There'll also be workshops, live music, a Trashy Art exhibition and slam poetry as well.
You'll be connecting with brands brands such as Huskee Cup, Sustainable Salons, Zero Co, Farm Wall and Ekoluv — and heading to sessions hosted by OzHarvest, Parva Little Things and Pocket City Farm.
There'll also be an onsite thrift shop, and every ticket holder will get two tokens to use at the store (or to pick up a Ben & Jerry's vegan ice cream).
