Shambala Festival news: BREAKING SUSTAINABILITY NEWS: YOU LOT ARE BLOODY BRILLIANT….

Latest update from Shambala Festival

BREAKING SUSTAINABILITY NEWS: YOU LOT ARE BLOODY BRILLIANT.

🌿 We are seriously happy to announce that we achieved an epic 25% increase in recycling rates compared to 2016, rocketing to a total of 91% of materials either recycled, composted or used for waste to energy.* Only 9% ended up in landfill and we aim to make this a big fat zero.🌿

🥦 We also reduced the total waste onsite by 15% overall in 2017 and, in partnership with local organisations, sent half a tonne of edible left-over food to people who need it.🥦

🎪 33 of you left a tent this year (absolutely no excuse!) but overall a massive well done to all of you who used the recycling exchanges, recycling bins, all of the amazing crew working on the Greenbox Recycling team and the tireless Upcycle crew who you may have seen in the campsites – this year’s results have shown that it all counts.🎪

Big love, The Shambala team x

(*56% recycled and composted, 35% waste to energy, 9% to landfill)

Hi there, I emailed you before and after the festival to say I never received my pre ordered programme. I wonder if I could have a credit note to use in the online shop? 😊

I would bloody love one of the T-Shirts you were giving out at the recycling point. Any knocking about? Thanks

Aww I want a hoodie but I think in men's sizes, even a size S would swamp me :/

ATara and Lex! You can get your calendars!

Amy do you want a shambala calendar or you happy with your Serial Killers one?

  1. This is amazing. Seeing queues of people WAITING to recycle was incredible! I have been to so many festivals where shit is just dumped everywhere. Watching kids and adults separating their recycling together was also very inspiring. if everyone does something small, this eventually makes something big 💕

  2. Great job. Really can’t understand the mentality of someone bring a tent to Shambala and not taking it home. Its not as if they are not constantly exposed to how green the festival is. Would love to know what they were thinking.
