“When I sug­gested switch­ing from dis­pos­able cups to re­us­able cups … my sug­ges­tion was met with neg­a­tiv­ity and brushed aside.”

But Eco Fash­ion Week Aus­tralia founder Zuhal Ku­vanMills told the Cairns Post the florist was us­ing plas­tic up un­til the first day of the event.

“We had no idea QT pro­vided $1000 (of) food in plas­tic serv­ings,” she said.

“As pay­ing cus­tomers it was a sur­prise to us as an eco event, but also we had no idea un­til it was served dur­ing the event.

“(Ms Sole) is us­ing this as an ex­cuse to pull out at the last minute.

Ms Ku­van-Mills said the ex­pe­ri­ence had sul­lied her over­all time in Port Dou­glas.

“EFWA won’t be re­turn­ing again … (I am) ex­tremely dis­ap­pointed by the treat­ment we re­ceived from a few busi­nesses, not only this par­tic­u­lar busi­ness, but other con­trac­tors,” Ms Ku­vanMills said.

EFWA con­tin­ues at Port Dou­glas to­day with the Dis­pos­able Planet 2 sem­i­nar at The Clink The­atre.
