Would you like to lower your carbon footprint at Glastonbury 2020?
Festivals customarily push the limits of character, music and legislative issues. An enormous part of this includes giving our internal child a chance to run free whilst we return to nature. Being eco friendly helps to preserve the natural world.
Despite the effort of thousands of litter pickers and brilliant recycling teams, for many years numerous festivals have unfortunately had a negative impact on the land. Some of the factors causing the earth and water features to be contaminated were the use of baby wipes, excessive plastic, people urinating on the field, single use camping supplies and litter being carelessly dropped throughout events.
Leave the land as you found it
Thankfully, in more recent years, the amount of waste has been reduced considerably. People are now more than ever aware of the consequences of not leaving the land as you found it. Knowledge has been spread and alternatives provided for those looking to reduce their carbon footprint.
It’s no small feat to organise the infrastructure and logistics of festivals. In additional to the mass organisation of Glastonbury Festival many involved incorporate and encourage an eco friendly event experience.
Our Sustainable campsite, located just a short distance from the Bronze Gate, is environmentally friendly. We have self pitching areas and provide glamping for those who would like to camp in kartents, safari tents, canvas bell tents and live in vehicles. Our site has power points and eco facilities.
Composting toilets and putting our nutrients back into the ecosystem
We are a hugh fan of the composting toilets provided by Natural Event at Glastonbury Festival. These toilets are mostly flat-packed and built on site achieving low transport miles. Rather than chucking shit into the ground, people are making compost when they throw a cup of sawdust over their business.
Here are some interesting quotes regarding sustainability that can certainly be applied to those attending festivals:
“Listen up….each recycled beer can save enough electricity to run a television for three hours.” – Denis Hayes
“The purpose – where I start – is the idea of use. It is not recycling, it’s reuse.” – Issey Miyake
“It seems to me that the natural world is the greatest source of excitement; the greatest source of visual beauty, the greatest source of intellectual interest. It is the greatest source of so much in life that makes life worth living.” David Attenborough
