Festival Republic, producers of Latitude, Reading and Leeds Festivals works hard to minimise the environmental impacts of their festivals. Last year successful campaigns included the tent recovery program with more than 10 000 items recovered and redistributed at Reading & Leeds; more than 90% of all paper beer cups were collected through the 10p banana/refund program and recycled at Reading & Leeds; and an innovative re-usable beer cup was used at Latitude Festival saving tonnes of waste. This year Festival Republic has produced a newsletter specifically for crew and stewards. Please read it here to catch up with what will be happening onsite this year that may concern you.

Please feel free to discuss this below! Be great to hear your views...

Does that mean all the generators are going to run from used chip shop oil? Godd idea, and I don't suppose we'll notice the smell as there'll be so many fried food outlets anyway.
Pity you can't realistically go round them all collecting their used oil every night, save even more fuel than lorrying it all in. I can just see the Green Messengers rolling barrels back to the site ;)

the gennerations these days have biocrysel , before it gets reused it goes thru a filtration process and additives added to it , it is cheaper to produce and no it doesn't smell , you cant take oil straight from the chippy and put it into generators , http://www.schnews.org.uk/diyguide/howtomakebiocrysel.htm this website is good tells you how they make biocrysel
