Festival Exhibitors

Come along to The Atrium at Fed Square and meet the businesses, social enterprises, groups and communities championing zero waste and sustainability initiatives with information and products designed to help you lower the waste in your life while protecting the environment. Our exhibitors will be there from 10am – 4pm.
