GLOW Remains Green in 2018

GLOW Elves

GLOW took a giant leap in 2017 and became a ZERO landfill festival with all waste produced on site either being recycled or composted.  

This year GLOW, A Cork Christmas Celebration on the Grand Parade is staying green. All our market traders are only using 100% compostable packaging for their foodstuffs. GLOW continues to be a zero-landfill festival in 2018 – the only bins available to visitors are compost or recycling. In the first weekend of GLOW, 0.88 tonnes of waste were diverted from landfill. This breaks down into 420kg of recyclable waste and 460kg of compostable waste. 

All weekend, friendly Green Elves will be on the Grand Parade to help members of the public make the right bin choice and to answer any questions that people might have about the initiative.
