Latest update from Boomtown Fair
Before we launch our environmental mission for Chapter 11 on Thursday, we’re celebrating some of the successes we collectively achieved last year…
🌞 The biggest achievement was earning a ‘commended’ award from external assessors A Greener Festival who measure our impact as a festival across a wide variety of categories, including everything from the local ecosystem to power on site.
🌞 More of you than ever decided to take the biggest step towards minimising carbon footprint by opting for coaches, trains and car sharing.
🌞 Our first ever big Boomtown Bike Ride was a sunny success – we’ve already added an extra location for this year!
🌞 To offset the damage from individual cars, 370,591 energy miles were balanced with Energy Revolution – money from every car pass purchased was donated to Solar 4 Schools, a project that aims to put solar panels on the roofs of every school in the UK!
Thank you to every single one of you that contributed… whether it was by leaving no trace and taking home all of your belongings, coming by coach or recycling on site: every small action counts and it takes all of us working together to create positive change!
Our new strategy is coming on Thursday, keep an eye out for how you can get involved then and you can find out more about the stats and initiatives we've mentioned
