You can do your part to help us make Flotilla Fiesta the most sustainable, zero-waste, green Fiesta event of 2023, by taking alternate transportation and bringing your own reusable water bottle! Instead of your car, you can take the bus, ride a bike, or walk to the event. If you need a vehicle, it’s a great idea to carpool!
Recycling is a way each of us can do our part to be better stewards of the environment as long as we are careful not to contaminate our efforts. Contamination occurs in recycling when non-recyclables are placed in recycling. Contamination can include anything from food waste to plastic bags.
When a certain percent of a batch of recycling is contaminated, the whole batch of recycling is considered unusable and thrown away! Therefore contamination can undermine the good recycling habits of others and cause easily recyclable items to end up in landfills.
