Wide Open Soup Cook Off with 9mile Legacy
January 26, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Encouraging Environmental Sustainability: Affinity Credit Union partnered with Nutrien WinterShines to improve our green footprint by bringing the festival as close to zero-waste as possible. Affinity is sponsoring the Zero Waste Zone to helps us to ensure all waste from the Soup Cook Offs is either recycled or composted. The Zero Waste Zone at the Soup Cook Offs will be operated by Affinity employees who volunteer their time, which includes attending a zero–waste training course delivered by the Sask Waste Reduction Council. These volunteers will help our guests and chefs with ‘what goes where’ for everyone’s leftover materials at the Soup Cook Offs so people can properly dispose of their waste into either compost, recycling or landfill bins. This year we have replaced our Styrofoam bowls and plastic spoons with compostable versions, so they will be able to go into the green bins. Compost bins will be places in the washrooms for the paper towel, and cups will also be composted as well. We are so excited to make these changes to the festival — thank you to Affinity Credit Union for this awesome support.
