Lantern Festival = Zero Waste

Thank you so much for signing up to help out at the Lantern Festival!

 

It is awesome to have you on board to make sure we keep Albert Park beautiful. We're really excited to have the opportunity to make a tangible difference to the environment!

 

Please arrive by 4.20pm on the days you are rostered (table below). We will be all done by 11.30pm at the latest.

 

We will meet at 4.20pm at the UoA quad grass patch (between 30 - 34 Princes St, opposite Albert Park). 

 

Your role is simple but really important to the festival and the environment: you will be positioned somewhere in the park at a waste station with 3 bins (compost, recycling, landfill) and you will be engaging with members of the public to make sure they know which bin their waste goes into, and why it's important.

 

This is a really valuable opportunity to engage people with the issue of waste. Many people are confused about which bin to use, and these are learnings they will take back to their homes and communities.

 

Before we start each day, we will have a quick training of what goes in each bin and how to engage the public. We will provide you with the equipment you need (bins, gloves, uniform).

 

The other task is to have fun! We'll provide some food and you'll have a chance to check out the lanterns. Please let me know if you have any dietary requirements asap.

  

To recap, please:

 1. Check the roster below

 2. Bring everything you need for the night (e.g. jacket) and wear comfortable clothes and shoes

 3. Turn up at 4.20pm and stay until 11.30pm at the latest (unless noted on roster)

 4. Let me know asap if you have dietary requirements

 5. Come ready to have some fun and make a difference!

  

Let me know if you have any questions, or if you need to change your shifts.

We could do with a few more on Sat, so if you'd like to swap please email me!

 

Really looking forward to working with you over the weekend!

Florence & the team at Plastic Diet

    Shout out to all the superstars who rocked last night!! Thank you for all your hard work - you are each incredible!! For tonight and tomorrow - 1) Bring a jacket and drink bottle 2) Wear comfy shoes (sneakers are best for standing for a long time) 3) We really need a few more people tonight! Please bring along a friend if possible! Even if it's just for an hour or two (busiest time is 6.30-9.30), because that will mean that everyone can have a chance for a break and enjoy the festival! See you at 4.20 at the grassy patch in the quad. We will relocate to the rotunda (round shelter) in Albert Park after we have everybody.
