Guide for waste management at parish events
Parishes and Catholic organizations celebrate many events on both a large scale and on a small scale. Care for God’s creation is an important value as we make decisions regarding the food and drinks we choose, the dishware and cutlery we use, and how we dispose of waste. Large events may include a parish dinner, volunteer appreciation day, annual parish social event, pancake breakfast, etc. Small events may include workshops, committee meetings, and small group socials where refreshments and snacks are served.
