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
