Ecological development

Ecological development in the festival camping community

​It is every human beings fundamental duty to minimise their impact on the environment as much as possible. It is fair to say that we grown more and more concerned about climate change and what will be the outcome in the future.  The idea of eco-friendly music festival camping has been roaming around for years but unfortunately hasn’t been successfully put to practice. Nowadays, however, music festivals are taking greater strides than ever to reduce their carbon footprints, not only promoting environmentally friendly practices but implementing fresh strategies to combat climate change.

What is Glamping?

The phenomenon known as “Glamping” helps in maintaining a eco-friendly environment which is suitable for climate change. As the name indicates, glamping is the portmanteau of the words “glamorous” and “camping”. The term was first coined in 2005 in the United Kingdom and was added to the Oxford English Dictionary in 2016. The word may sound new but the concept is not. The energy and materials used in the construction and management of a small hotel takes a lot of time and are quite high, glamping on the other hand accommodates quite a lot of festival goers and in many cases, take advantage of the surrounding elements of nature. Rather than awakening and venturing out of your home into your ordinary every day schedule, you can wake up and step outside of your bell or safari tent, yurt, reestablished trailer, or tree house into your own private characteristic retreat. Destinations are currently commonly expected to give a specific degree of solace for their visitors, including power (which can be given both on-and off-network), shower and toilet facilities.

Eco-friendly festival camping and tents

The festival season is ideal for those of you who love being outdoors in nature and listening to live music. However, in the United Kingdom, it is evaluated that 250,000 tents are surrendered at concerts, adding up to 900 tons of plastic waste going into landfill. The Association of Independent Festivals (AIF) propelled the Take Your Tent Home – Say No to Single Use campaign not long ago, which pursued the Drastic on Plastic activity in 2018. Likewise Eco Action’s Love Your Tent and its #justtakeithome message, focus on lessening squander and reminding festival goers that a tent is a long term investment. A greener option in contrast to purchasing a nylon tent is to hire one. Sustainable Camping Co offer made in Britain canvas bell and safari tents for hire and like teepees, these glamping optionss have better breathability and extended life expectancy. We also have easily recyclable cardboard Kartents available to hire and will be supplying eco facilities for festivals.
