The 2023 Hope Spot Festival was the first Renüable Certified Zero Waste Festival on the Florida Gulf Coast! We're striving to do it again in 2024, so we respectfully require that you not bring single use or disposable giveaways and that bags be either reusable or certified compostable. Food waste and compostable materials discarded at the festival will be composted by Suncoast Compost by Renüable and turned into fertilizer or anaerobically digested at Rosebud Continuum and turned into energy, so they must adhere to certain standards. All compostable prodcuts should be BPI certified or CMA Composter-Approved. Auburn Supply Group is a company located in Clearwater and will soon set up a collection of certified compostable items that will break down thoroughly for vendors to purchase for this event. Please keep this in mind when provisioning your booth and check out Dunedin's Green Event Guide for more of the practices we'll implement.
