The Hopewell Harvest Fair is on a journey toward being a zero waste, litter-free event. Our initiatives include:
Multiple large water coolers are stationed around the fairgrounds so attendees can refill their durable water bottles.
Town Square and Kids' Korner participants are not permitted to give away balloons or other inflatable toys, and they are encouraged to offer promotional freebies/prizes which are useful and reusable, made of sustainable or recycled/recovered materials, and ideally made in USA. Some suggestions are listed below.
New for 2023 is a TerraCycle Zero Waste Bag to collect plastic wrappers (paid for by a nominal charge to any Town Square booths handing out individually-wrapped candy, etc.).
Also new for 2023 are compost bins provided by OneCompostCan of Hopewell, monitored by volunteers instructed to divert any possible contamination.
Suggestions for favors, freebies and prizes:
