With apologies to Kermit, everyone’s favorite frog, it’s easy to be green at the Gravenstein Apple Fair. Known as the “sweetest little fair in Sonoma County,” with our commitment to zero waste, it will also be the “greenest little fair in Sonoma County.”
According to Kermit being green means “the color of spring,” and being “cool and friendlylike.” We love his definition! But it means something even more to the organizers of the fair.
Sustainability at the Fair
Being green at the Gravenstein Apple Fair means:
- Reusable glassware for libations
- NO plastic bottles
- Compostable serviceware and real silverware
- NO single serving condiments
Fair Vendors must agree to comply with our Sustainability Guidelines. We thank them for their support and partnership.
While Miss Piggy may never get her man, um frog, she’ll be thrilled to know that many leftovers from the fair will be used as top-quality pig food. Local pig farmers will pick up a trailer-full of discarded food at the end of the fair.
Stylish Fair Gear!
Ring-spun organic cotton, made in California, our Gravenstein Apple Fair tee is all about being green.
