We all love the oceans the plastic situation is out of hand and must be addressed. Thankfully there has been a greater focus on this issue recently, but everyone has to do their bit. From our side we have once again pledged that wherever we can we will not use single use plastics at the festival: Goody bags will be made of paper, all food traders have been asked to use recyclable materials, we will be using re-useable or recyclable cups for all drinks bought at the festival and we are looking at other ways to go further where we can.
We are working with Norse South East again to make sure we are recyling as much as we possibly can across the festival, please do help us in our efforts by making sure you put your waste in the correct bins. Anything that can’t be recycled will be taken away and burnt in a plant. The energy produced by burning non-recyclable waste is then being used to feed back into the grid.
Protected Land and Beach
We are also partnering with Natural England and Hamshire and Isel of Wight Wildlife Trust to ensure the festival does no damage to the environment in any way. BBQs and fires are not allowed in the campsite for Health & Safety reasons but also to protect the SSSI land we are using and camping on at the festival. If you are using the beach, please note the Ringed Plovers will be nesting at the back of the beach in June and we will be putting up some signage to point this out to all beach users.
