News from the Sustainability Team

It’s been almost a month since Redfest!

First of all, a big thank you to the Redfest team and YOU, our attendees, for getting behind Redfest Goes Green!

The festival may have finished for this year, but we in the Redfest Sustainability Team are still hard at work analysing data and working out how green Redfest was this year.

We still have a lot of information to go through and a fair few numbers to crunch, but we have already seen the positive impact that our solar powered stages and reusable cups have had, so a big thank you to Bristol 2015 and Green Goblets.

We will have some sustainability information for you soon so in the meantime we’d love to hear about what you thought of Redfest Goes Green.

Use the hashtag #RedfestGoesGreen on Twitter and Facebook to tell us what you thought of our sustainable initiatives, how you think we did and what we could do better next year to help us make Redfest Bristol’s most sustainable festival!

See you next year,

The Redfest Sustainability Team

Our cup deposit system: how it works

We’re always looking to find new ways to make ourselves more sustainable and help out the environment by reducing our impact on it. This is why we have teamed up with Green Goblet Ltd to ensure that we reduce our use of single-use plastics by providing reusable drinks cups for our attendees at Redfest 2015.

It’s a very simple concept with just five easy steps:

  1. Make your way over to the bar
  2. Order your drink of choice
  3. Pay a £1 deposit for your reusable cup
  4. Enjoy your chosen beverage whilst soaking up the Redfest atmosphere (this is easily the most important bit!)
  5. Return to the bar with your empty cup and receive your £1 deposit back (or, take your cup home with you and use it again and again)

Voila! It’s as easy as that!

This is just one of the many ways that we’re making Redfest a greener festival and with the help of you: the wonderful people of Bristol, we know that we can make it happen!
