We're Getting 'Drastic On Plastic'!!
Fairport's Cropredy Convention, along with over 60 members of the Association of Independent Festivals (AIF), will be taking active steps to show our commitment in eliminating single-use plastic at our events by 2021. The first collective step will be a ban on plastic straws this year at the participating festivals.
A digital campaign will launch on Earth Day - this Sunday, 22 April. It will see the websites of the member festivals digitally 'wrapped in plastic' for 24 hours along with links and further information on the campaign.
But we can do much more!
At the festival itself this August, when you purchase a pint, half, glass of wine or soft drink at the Wadworth Bar, it will be served in a bio-degradable container.
All food backstage served to artists and crew will be done using non-plastic, degradeable materials.
All our crew and artists will be given refillable Stainless Steel water bottles to help reduce the enormous number of single use bottles we go through on site each year.
And you can join in! Go to our HOME page on the website this Sunday and follow the link to pre-order your own Fairport's Cropredy Convention etched Stainless Steel bottle. Bottles will be despatched in early July in plenty of time for the festival.
The message is simple folks. Re-use not Single use.
