Lucidity Festival Lobbies for Legal Dishwashing


Organizers of this year’s Lucidity Festival have teamed up with the county’s Public Health Department and an environmental consulting company called Sudbusters to create a dishwashing pilot program in the name of sustainability and reduced waste. Previously forced to use “single use” plates mandated by current health and food codes, festival leaders say they hope to prove that dishwashing can be a sanitary and viable option in a big event setting, and they’re working with Assemblymember Das Williams’s office to reform the outdated section of food-service legislation by 2016.
