Zero Waste Event
A “zero waste event” is largely defined as at least 90% of the event waste will be diverted from the landfill. To make this happen, all single-use products provided will be made of compostable material and are BPI certified. As we are using an industrial composter, products such as plates, silverware, cups, and napkins will all be able to be composted.
All of our standard trash cans throughout the zoo will be converted into compost bins for Zoo La La, meaning you will only find compost and recycling available. All waste accumulated here can be composted, and all aluminum can be recycled
We are also partnering with Last Mile Food Rescue. While we aim for no food waste, we want to make sure that any edible leftovers will be donated to a good cause. Last Mile Food Rescue will be onsite at the end of the event to collect any food that would otherwise go to waste.
