Eco Festival 2022
In 2021 with a footfall of approximately 3,500, we are one of the largest Eco Festivals in the UK. Sustainability is at the heart of the Eco Festival, it is our aspiration that all future events will be sustainable and carbon negative.
Our pragmatic goal for the event is to be carbon neutral and highly ecological. We are therefore asking all stallholders attending the event to self assess their ecological impact by assessing your transportation, energy use, packaging, country of origin and sustainability of materials, equipment, ingredients and the waste products produced. This will help you to evaluate, understand and make deliberate choices to reduce your impact. We will give preference to local businesses but we expect all businesses attending to be within 30-40 mile radius of Colchester (unless you have a local representative).
If you need help or have questions please let us know as we will be glad to help. Carbon offsetting is one way to reduce your impact but this is not a silver bullet.
