This year we made four GREEN INSPIRATION Awards from a final shortlist of ten nominees who had been selected by our team of environmental assessors who visit festivals all around the world. The nominations included Ecoaction Partnership for their marvellous ‘Love Your Tent‘ campaign that is at the forefront of the fight against campsite waste, Africa Express for their novel tour of Great Britain by train – cutting out road travel all together, and We Love Green in Paris for their outstanding compost toilets and But our final four winners were
The Shambala Festival’s “The Surplus Supper Club” which works with Fareshare to use waste food to produce meals here in the United Kingdom
The Open Air Festival in the Czech Republic for its home-made on-site biodigestor
Boom Festival’s on site STAR water recycling system in Portugal
Good food and farming alliance Sustain’s marvellous Good Food Guide for Festivals
These are four very worthy winners – but we will hopefully make more awards in 2013, and our team here and our environmental assessors are continuously on the lookout for new inspirational ideas: if you are at a festival and see something that chimes a green chord – you can always let us know – you can email firstname.lastname@example.org – we would live to hear from you!
