Now, you must be wondering what EarthFest is all about. Here’s what we know!
At EarthFest, it offers us a glimpse into what our future could look like with the backing of science, a little innovation and an open mind – it’s not about giving things up! It prides itself as a low-waste festival that uses biodegradable & compostable cutlery sets and utilizes technology to distribute information!
Catered to people across age groups, gender and background, there is something for everyone. Sit back and enjoy live performances or walk around and look at the yummy spread of plant-based international food fair and local sustainable businesses! Participate in their hands-on workshops or take a break and listen to guest speakers.
Located at Marina Barrage which was awarded the Green Mark Platinum Infrastructure Award, the top award at BCA awards, it is one of the most beautiful sustainable buildings in Singapore and it is the perfect place to host EarthFest 2018! Its green roof is made of 100% recycled plastics & eco-friendly drainage cells and double-glazed glass panels reduced heat penetration and minimized the need for air conditioning system. Moreover, the Solar Park alone generates enough energy to power 180 average households in Singapore … and more!
So, what are you waiting for?
Join us on January 14 (Sunday) and be a part of EarthFest 2018 (:

Are we really serious about sustainability? This is how we’ll stand apart: Our food fair will use 100% compostable material – and we’ll actually compost it! The food is all planet-friendly requiring less water, land, and food inputs to produce while still being delicious and healthy (and from some of Singapore most highly rated restaurants!) We’ll feature only reusable bags and no pamphlets can be handed out – they have to do digital distribution! And all that haze we’ve been breathing in? Well that’s due to palm oil – so it’s banned at EarthFest! More than that we’re the first comprehensive sustainability festival that unites many organisations and businesses together at once. You’ll have access to information on fair trade, buying local, organic, responsible investing, planet-friendly and healthy food, transportation, biodegradable & non-toxic options, overfishing, waste, electricity usage, water and much, much more! Most importantly, we’ll inspire you with the effective ways you can make changes to really make a sustainable and modern future possible!
Excited? We are and hope you are too! We hope to see you on February January 14, 2018 from 11 am to 4:30 pm for EarthFest!
