We are an earth-wise event. We represent our values through actions and have designed an environmental impact reduction plan which will be integrated into all aspects of our event. We will educate and encourage positive environmental behaviour throughout the event. Our environmental commitment includes:
Waste Reduction: We will minimise the amount of waste generated at our festival by implementing practices such as composting, recycling, and insisting that our food traders use biodegradable products. We will issue paperless tickets and we have a site wide ban on single-use plastics. We have a bring your own cup policy.
Energy Conservation: We are an outdoor, summertime festival and the line up we have planned is designed to use as little energy as possible. We will have a carpooling strategy, which will be coordinated and promoted by us.
Sustainable Sourcing: We will choose traders and retailers who use products from local and sustainable suppliers, including food and beverage, and ensure that all products are ethically sourced and produced.
Education and Awareness: Through talks, demonstrations and general ethos, we will educate and raise awareness among attendees about environmental issues and encourage them to adopt sustainable practices in their daily lives. This is the ripple effect we hope for by using yoga as a vehicle for earth-wise education.
