Belgium’s Demo Forest delivers sustainable success

Unbe-leaf-able news! We’re excited to share Vegware’s first Belgium case study!

Demo Forest is the leading eco forestry event in Europe. It has 50,000 attendees over two days. To reduce their environmental impact the event organisers chose Vegware compostable foodservice packaging across the site, which was turned into quality compost after use. 

This was a first for an event of this magnitude in Belgium and required cooperation from all key teams involved. Demo Forest replaced conventional packaging with Vegware to reduce general waste and join their local circular economy. 

The used Vegware was sorted manually on-site, to ensure only good quality organic matter was sent to the waste facility. They composted 420kg of used Vegware and food waste, which was transformed into green energy and quality compost, for local use. This is just the first sustainable step, and the team are determined to build on these results in 2021.
