    The Story of Stuff evening at Bayworld
    The fifth in a series of events entitled “The World in the Bay” will take place on Friday, 10 December 2010 at Bayworld and will focus on “Going Green”.

    A highlight of the programme will be a 20 minute video “The Story of Stuff” which illustrates where “stuff” comes from and what happens to it when we discard it. There will be short presentations on recycling, biodegradable food products and sea life in trouble.

    The winners of the schools recycling competition which was organized by The Waste Trade Company will be announced. Competition entries will be displayed during the Green Event, The learner with the winning entry will receive a voucher to be “Trainer for a Day” at the Oceanarium, and runners-up will each receive a “Friends of Bayworld” voucher.

    The rest of the evening will be open, allowing visitors to view the exhibitions, purchase refreshments (in biodegradable or recyclable containers), and mingle with fellow growing green minds. Various exhibitors will display aspects of mankind’s impact on the environment, and environmentally friendly practices such as worm farming and organic gardening.

    Exhibitors taking part in the evening include the Nelson Mandela Bay Transition Network, Green Home, The Waste Trade Company, Waste Exchange System, Urban Harvest Edible Gardens, and many more. If your company/organisation is interested in exhibiting, please contact Michelle du Toit at mdutoit@bayworld.co.za.

    The event will take place in the Marine Hall of the PE Museum at Bayworld at 18:00 till 21:00. Members of the public are invited to attend free of charge. Refreshments will be on sale.
