Queenscliff Music Festival
QMF's War on Waste
Finalist in the Premier's Sustainability Awards 2020 – Community category
Queenscliff Music Festival's (QMF) War on Waste program was a true community effort; educating attendees and locals in sustainable waste practices and exemplifying what is possible for similar events, with 95% of waste generated being diverted from landfill.
Partnering with Feed Me Bellarine and food vendors, the festival saw 500kg of excess food salvaged and delivered to citizens in need.
Additionally, over 500 families were engaged through Bellarine Catchment Network in festival activities, including propagation of seedlings which were later planted across the local dune system.
