Ask Mr. Answer Person: another Nordic Fest question

Posted: Thu, Aug 25, 2011 3:16 PM

Sara e-mails Mr. Answer Person: "During Nordic Fest, is it feasible for food vendors and booths to use biodegradable plates/cups/bowls/utensils instead of Styrofoam & plastic?  Biodegradable materials are better for the environment and our landfill.  Does the Nordic Fest Board have authority to require biodegradables?"

Mr. Answer Person is going to step aside and let Nordic Fest Board President Cindy Schissel answer your question:  "What a great question!  Throughout our Nordic Fest celebration we  encourage all food vendors to look for biodegradable products. 

However, at this time we do not mandate any such requirement.  We would also like to invite anyone with suggestions and solutions to become members of the Nordic Fest Board.  With more members we would be able to be more proactive with these important issues.
