This is a Zero-Waste Event

Bring a refillable water bottle
Stay hydrated! Fill a water bottle or travel mug before you come to the event. Use one of the many water refill stations to refill when needed.

Compostable plates, cups, and more
Dinner at CORNUCOPIA will be served on 100% compostable service ware. That means your plate, cup, napkin, cutlery (and even the wrapper it comes in!) are all compostable. All food scraps are compostable as well. Please do not throw flyers, newspapers, candy wrappers, or chip bags into the compost; use our recycling and trash bins instead.
