I know it would be more expensive and would take more time, but I thought it was a bit silly that as soon as the festival was over, recycling went out the window (Not literally)

If a festival wants to preach that they're green and all that they should give a larger sum or more time to clean up properly.

This is not a sustainable idea, he is powered on cups of tea and bacon sandwiches all which use far too much energy to produce.

Well if everyone remembers to bring their own cup or mug that would definately save on all the paper cups we go through. And if we all remeber to bring water bottles that would save on plastic bottles ! Matt can we stick a reminder in the info packs ?

Dave and maurice , were definately seeing a progression towards this as festival organisers get more involved and interested in recycling etc. Unfortunately it won't happen over night. This year we will also be trying to improve campsite recyling during the show. Ps loving the ebay site maurice !

Clean them up and sell them or take them to a local charity shop?
