Standon Calling is continuing to strive to make our festival greener year on year. Below are a few of the pledges and initiatives we have on site, with more to be announced in the upcoming weeks.
Drastic On Plastic
For 2019, we are continuing our pledge to the Association of Independent Festival’s Drastic On Plastic Campaign as part of a group of 60 other UK festivals all aiming to eliminate single use plastic by 2021. Find out more here.
We are proud to say we are on our 5th year of using reusable cups at our bars and we are continuing to enforce that only recyclable packaging is used by our traders. We encourage attendees to bring your own re-fillable waterbottles to site also as this year we are installing more water taps around the site!
We are continuing to use GreenBox recycling who ensure that nothing is sent to landfill that can’t be reused – they recycle 90% of the festival waste collected and the other 10% is sent to local companies who place non-recyclables into an energy from waste facility, resulting in your festival waste being used to generate electricity.
