ecomaine’s ecofest!

ecomaine’s ecofest is a celebration of the waste hierarchy in Maine: REDUCE, REUSE, RECYCLE, COMPOST, WASTE-TO-ENERGY, and Landfilling (as a last resort).

On Earth Day 2023 (Saturday, April 22), ecomaine celebrated sustainability through reducing, reusing, recycling, and composting at ecofest, a community-oriented event with activities, giveaways, food, music, and more!

ecofest had exhibitor and vendor tables with information and resources to help live more sustainably, giveaways and raffle prizes, recycling and compost bins, activities for kids of all ages, and food trucks! For those familiar with ecomaine’s annual Open House… It was similar, but with a twist! It was such a success, we’re planning to do it again in 2024! Stay tuned!

In the spirit of REUSE, anyone who brought a reusable mug to ecofest for their complimentary coffee was entered for an extra raffle prize!
