LoveYourTent

 

Waste is a key issue, which the festival community needs to tackle head-on, particularly the problem of discarded tents and camping equipment which are left behind at the end of each event.

 

With this in mind Eco Action Partnership launched Love Your Tent, the campaign designed to bond people with their portable homes, encouraging them to reuse instead of discard.

 

Our aim is to publicise the issue and create some solid solutions for change, which will benefit the whole of the festival community.

 

To give some scale to the problem most events are affected by the problem of waste and discarded tents, making it one of the biggest environmental issues facing festival organisers.

 

Rick Storey, who helped initiate the campaign explains; ‘We are determined to make festivals greener, more sustainable and more enjoyable events for audiences and organisers, and one way of doing that is to cut down on the number of discarded tents.’

 

‘This can’t be done in solus, it needs to happen across the festival community and should involve tent retailers, festival goers and organisers.’

Love Your Tent

Let it Bee…….

Is an environmental campaign to  monitor, support and protect dwindling bee populations on the Isle of Wight, initiated jointly by EAP and the IOW music festival, and which Sir Paul McCartney supported the launch of when he headlined the festival in 2010.

 

To date the campaign has carried out a research project on the South of the island , and launched a bee reserve where 110 types of bees and wasps have been found. Both initiatives are of national interest, and the Field of Hope (FoH) has also gained interest from the European Union as a blueprint for best practice in supporting bee populations.
