Random Tip: Boston Local Food Festival
The Boston Local Food Festival will take place this Saturday, October 2, from 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. at Fort Point Channel. Unlike a lot of so-called environmental festivals, this is striving to be a “zero-waste festival.” It’s requiring vendors to serve foods in biodegradable dishware, providing bins for composting as well as recycling, and discouraging vendors from handing out disposable materials. Who knows how well it’ll live up to those goals, but I’m interested to see. Check it out.
