Sustainable event management

The little bites and refreshments offered by local restaurants generate waste that is nearly all recyclable or compostable. The Cabane Panache et Bois Rond would like to underscore their environmentally-responsible stance and seeks to create a waste-free event.

Management of waste and compostable packaging

Thanks to Cascades, our partner in environmental responsibility for the event, recycling and composting locations are strategically placed around the event to encourage the disposal of waste. A squad will also be on-site to supervise waste management.
