The green grass surrounding of Lake Wendouree will be a little greener on SpringFest Sunday with Grampians Central West Waste and Resource Recovery Group making its first appearance at the mega-market and creating a new spring garden area for marketgoers to enjoy.
Grampians Central West WRRG will bring their Little Green Wagon and create a Recycling Magical Mystery Tour taking participants on a tour of recycling from the start - the choices you make when you go shopping at the Rethink Supermarket, through to dealing with food waste once you start cooking in your kitchen, waste free lunches for work and school, electronic waste, recycling on the go with reusable coffee cups, drink bottles and reusable straws through to sustainable festive celebrations.
"It's mostly about getting people to understand that recycling doesn't start with the yellow lid bin - it starts when you go shopping," said Grampians Central West WRRG executive director LaVergne Lehmann.
The Spring Garden will be in area O of the Rotary Club of Ballarat's annual SpringFest market which will see more than 530 market stalls to browse around Lake Wendouree with a wide range of goods, performances, displays and activities for all ages.
