Great weather to savour a green sustainable Kilkenny

Savour Kilkenny has introduced new green initiatives to  minimise the  environmental impact of the festival with  waste minimisation and also raising  environmental awareness for stall holders and visitors. This includes food waste bins,  (for  cooked /  raw food) in addition general waste bins, compostable packaging, cardboard and newspaper. Reusable shopping bags are also available. This green initiative will divert food waste from landfill and instead the waste will be composted and converted into a usable product. Kilkenny CoCo  and  Savour encourage festival goers to separate their waste into compostable and general waste. visitors can refill their water bottles at provided water points  reducing the need for plastic bottled water.  Visitors are encouraged to  walk, cycle, car pool to get to events which are mostly centered on the City area within easy access.
