Zero Waste Event - Bring a Water Bottle

Each year, we strive to make Earth Day better, and this year we are upping our standards and aiming for a zero waste event.

What will this look like?

There will be a central drop-off depot (similar to what you see at the Devonshire Mall food court), where dedicated volunteers will be sorting recyclables and compostables. There will also be volunteer runners picking up waste dropped at waste stations throughout the event area.

However, in order for this to be successful, we are asking all vendors to ensure that any waste generated be recyclable or compostable. Please find attached a letter outlining acceptable products:

We encourage you to call with any questions you may have about products.

Exhibitor Registration is Now Open

Note: The covered-space option is no longer available, as we have filled up the visitor's centre and patio.

  • Registration for 2024 booths is now open.

Exhibitors, please be aware of a slight modification to this year's registration procedure. Please complete both the Earth Day 2024 Registration Form and the 2024 Vendor, Exhibitor, Performer Waiver and send to by email. The contact information will be forwarded to Windsor's Central Booking, who will contact you individually, thus avoiding the possibility of waiting on hold for payment. We hope this makes everything smoother.

This year, we are also asking you to submit summary details of your booth, particularly any planned activities. This will help minimize duplication of activities as well as help the organizers navigate attendees on the day of the event.
