Eco fashion week at risk
“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.
