The 2015 Brat Fest will not only feature the traditional brats, brews and bands, but the organizers are implementing a zero waste initiative this year, according to a release.
Brat Fest organizers said they plan on improving their current recycling program and will also be composting during the event, with the goal of reducing the amount of garbage in an effort to protect the environment.
“The zero-waste movement is all about creating waste management procedures with the ultimate goal that everything be recycled, reused or composted, with as little as possible remaining for disposal, the release said.
According to the release, Brat Fest organizers are proactively working with food vendors to choose compostable supplies so that more of the trash generated will be diverted from the landfill.
There will also be volunteers to help event-goers know which containers to put their waste into, organizers said.
