The new Newsletter from the Better Festival Group!

The BETTER FESTIVAL GROUP have sent out their first newsletter for 2010 and here are some of the highlights – starting off with their new green campaigns for 2010.

Campaigns for 2010 – With environmental responsibility becoming more important, and individuals and businesses alike having to take more accountability for their carbon footprint, we are launching 2 new campaigns for 2010.  The BIG Tent Recycle aims to tackle the huge amounts of reusable / recyclable items that get left behind at larger events, enabling local charities and global organisations to make use of as much stuff as possible.  The second is a smaller version of the above and aims to implement recycling initiatives and opportunities and a Green Team into events to promote a green message.

Reading & Leeds Focus Group – The Focus Groups for Reading and Leeds will take place early next year, so if you have a comment, complaint or a suggestion that you would like considered for discussion at this meeting please register on the forums if you haven’t already done so and let us know.
