Dubbo, this is ours.

our commitment to sustainability

We are committed to a making Under Western Skies a sustainable festival. In 2020 this means: 

Minimising our waste footprint

  • BYO (empty) water bottles
  • use of starch-based bio-cups at the bar (not plastic)
  • no sales of single-use bottled water on site
  • minimal plastic cutlery for sale, encouraging patrons to bring their own
  • recyclable bottles and cans

Reducing our carbon footprint​

  • use of primarily digital promotions
  • choosing local and regional suppliers for food, drink and on-site services
  • borrowing infrastructure from like-minded local groups rather than buying it (which helps keeps costs down too!)​

Over the next few years we hope to:

  • eliminate all single use plastics
  • move to bar ‘keep-cups’
  • continue to reduce power consumption
  • provide more transport options to reduce vehicle trips
  • use only carbon-neutral electricity sources (via greenpower products)
