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 2020 event is to be carbon neutral and highly ecological. We are therefore asking all stallholders attending the event to self assess their ecological footprint, as well as supplying their risk assessment and method statement. This will help you to evaluate, understand and make deliberate choices to reduce your impact.
We would like you to assess your ecological impact by assessing your transportation, energy use, packaging, country of origin and sustainability of materials, equipment, ingredients and the waste products produced.
Please complete the online application form, which you will find a link to at the bottom of this page. Prizes will be awarded to the stalls demonstrating the highest levels of sustainability and innovation.
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.
