Be Green

 

FestiVols works with festivals and events to ensure they are as green as possible.

 

We encourage you to become conscious of a greener ethos and the carbon footprint you make by coming to the festival/event.

 

Try to car pool and share fuel costs and reduce emissions.

 

Bring your own water bottle – we will provide you with water!

 

Don’t buy a tent and abandon it at the end, or if you really must, at least pack it up nicely and give to out recycling team.
