Green Info/ Recycling
As Green Champions, the Solfest Team prides itself on the fact that we have always taken environmental issues seriously. We encourage our Traders to use solar power and the Healing Area was powered wholly by green energy in 2011.
In recent years, due to careful planning and by looking carefully at our power usage, we have also significantly reduced our use of diesel generators.
Our Straw Bale Urinals proved a hit since we started using them in 2010 and they make a welcome return in 2013! Our womenfolk will be pleased to hear that there will be bales in the Main Arena, freeing up the loos for our ladies, and saving our lovely menfolk time in queues (we all know men prefer to pee outdoors). We also save diesel costs because we don't have to transport your wee around the county for disposal!
K 9 Event Waste Management will be with us again ensuring that our beautiful site remains so throughout the weekend. Please use the signposted recycling points for your waste. This year we are on target to recycle at least 60% of your waste - more would be fantastic.
In the past, some folks have left waste that could have been taken home. For example, tents, chairs and - would you believe it - caravans! Please help us by taking your stuff home with you.
