There are a few basic procedures that can be followed to mitigate as much as possible. There will be no single-use plastic at the festival, environmentally safe inks, minimal paper printed on site, use of local supply chain, reusable drinks cups, sustainably-minded traders and what we can’t avoid we will offset with a bonafide carbon offset programme.
In the spirit of our sister event, the Blue Earth Summit, we also plan to hold various sustainability talks and workshops on site to enable the event to be a relevant platform and educational resource on the subject for our visitors.
We will do our best to make sure that we do as much as possible to protect our precious environment. We know live events can never be 100% perfect from an environmental perspective, but there are things we can all do to help alleviate the overall impact.
As a festival, we’ll make sure no single-use plastics are used, and that we only use environmentally safe inks on site. Minimal paper will be printed and, where possible, we’ll use a local supply chain. Only reusable drinks cups will be available, and we’ll also ensure that our traders are sustainably minded too.
