Bring your own utensils

You can help make Freespace Fest a green festival in Hong Kong by bringing your own utensils. While we are working with our green partner to reduce our environmental impacts, our efforts are largely dependent on you. All Food & Beverage booths would have a small charge HK$3 for each set of container and utensil. Here are some tips:

  • Bring your own mugs, containers and utensils
  • Minimise the amount of packaging you bring and leave behind
  • Dispose of your recycling and trash at designated collection points on site
