Towards Zero WasteBentleigh Farmers Market is a “Towards Zero Waste” market which means we are aiming to produce zero waste from the market (ideally this includes all preparatory and behind the scenes work too).
Why Zero Waste?Because we live on an amazing planet, the only one in the entire universe (that we know of) that supports life. This planet is under enormous stress from overconsumption and waste of resources. In natural systems there is no waste. We support nature. We support this planet, our home. Help us support it too.
The BFM aims to achieve Zero Waste through a number of programs and strategies including the following:
No Plastic Bag Policy
BYO Mug Policy
3 Bin Waste Station Policy
Towards Zero Waste Educational Program
