What’s not to love about a festival, thousands of happy faces, great music, drinks and of course delicious foods.
BUT what we don’t realise is how bad these huge worldwide festivals are for the environment and how much waste they actually cause.
For the seasonal travellers, and the green lovers, who not only have the travel bug, but the festival bug, and want to make our environment a better place – this one is for them.
Travel with Jane want to share with the you best festivals for the eco lovers around the world. Here are a few that have adopted eco practices and generally care about the environment – given the wastage some festivals produce.
Lightning in a Bottle
This eco-friendly American festival prides itself on teaching its attendees green ways of living. Located in California, USA, Lightning in a Bottle is all about sustainability, providing its attendees with free water, teaching cultural respect, renewable energy and teaching its attendees green ways of living such as recycling. This event also works with several partner organisations to keep this a drug free and safe event for all that attend.
Fuji Rock Festival
Believe it or not Japan has one of the cleanest cities in the world so why should they have an eco-friendly festival, and rumour has its one of the cleanest in the world too. While this is one of Japans largest music festivals, the rock loving festival is all about teaching its attendees to live a green life. This eco loving festival even has a solar powered stage run by volunteers, this festival is not one to be missed.
This huge festival takes place in the UK and spreads over 5 days. Glastonbury has over 100 volunteers who help keep their grounds clean. With the mission to provide a greener, cleaner venue, Glastonbury works alongside Oxfam, Greenpeace and Water Aid to make a difference.
Located in Nyon, Switzerland is a festival that knows exactly how to be clean and green. This festival provides its attendees with organic foods, clean grounds, a green energy powered festival, and all rubbish recycled.
