One million plastic cups are tossed into the landfill every minute. Thanks to everyone who purchased the reusable aluminum cups sold at the Fairfax Festival (or brought their own). Sustainable Fairfax installed a cup collection display to educate people on this issue. Please continue to spread the good word!
Join Sustainable Fairfax and the Environmental Forum of Marin for a screening of the film WASTED! Through the eyes of chef-heroes like Anthony Bourdain, Dan Barber, Mario Batali, Massimo Bottura, and Danny Bowien, see how the world’s most influential chefs make the most of every kind of food, transforming “scraps” into incredible dishes that creates a more secure food system.
See how food waste directly contributes to climate change and how each of us can make small changes – all of them delicious – to solve one of the greatest problems of the 21st century.
Submit your pledge to reduce food waste before the film and enter a free Raffle for $100 Good Earth Gift Certificate!
Film will be followed by a discussion with the Sustainable Fairfax Zero Waste Team.

FREE COMPOST FOR FAIRFAX RESIDENTS. Compost will be available to Fairfax residents on Friday, November 30, 2018 at the Fairfax Pavilion Parking Lot (at the ball field fence). This will be the last delivery made by Marin Sanitary Service in 2018. This compost is made from the food and yard waste collected in our green curbside carts.
Since the delivery is shared with all Fairfax residents, please do not take more than five 5-gallon buckets (which provides a one inch cover for a 40 square foot garden). Please bring your own containers and shovels for collection.
Use of Compost: Compost is a soil amendment that improves the water-holding capacity and structure of your soil, but too much of it can harm your plants. It is recommended that you use no more than 1-2 inches on your annuals & perennials.
NOT FOR COMMERCIAL USE – MUST BE FAIRFAX RESIDENT
