Our Impact Planet

Our Planet

More than just a market

It’s time to turn the tide. We are committed to ensuring our planet is nurtured and taken care of for future generations to come. This means implementing positive and sustainable practices beyond being a marketplace for the community.

We do this in ways big and small.

We are a 100%
single-use plastic-free and
waste-free event.

All vendors are required to avoid single-use plastic, by providing recyclable and compostable alternatives. We encourage stallholders to also reduce their packaging and promotional material. Our markets produce minimal waste and it is either recycled, repurposed or composted.

BYO or borrow from
our Mug Library

We promote and educate people on living more lightly. Another key initiative in line with our goals of reducing the impact of single-use plastic is our Mug Library, where mugs and eating utensils are available to the public to borrow. Once used, the Surfrider Foundation crew will wash your mugs at the sanitised washing station. Get amongst it, BYO mug & save a turtle.

Get amongs it, BYO mug & save a turtle.

Reduce carbon emissions
and come car free

We encourage all salty folk planning on visiting the SUMMERxSALT markets to come “Car Free”. Ride your bike, walk, skate or catch public transport to reduce your carbon emissions.

Responsible production

We also believe you should be able to consume guilt-free, safe in the knowledge that products and services were created with love for people & planet.

Each and every stall holder application is given the time it deserves and is assessed through a thorough screening process to ensure all responsible production terms are met.

We are guided by the United Nations’ 17 Sustainable Development Goals to
transform our world by 2030 to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all.
To date we have achieved the following :
