We hope you love Finsbury Park as much as we do and want to help us keep it one of London’s favourite green spaces. We are dedicated to reducing the environmental impact of the festival and need your help to make it happen.
Last year the carbon footprint of the festival was 192 tonnes of CO2e, we want to reduce it this year.
The emissions from travelling to the festival make up 80% of the entire festivals carbon footprint (source: The Show Must go On Report, 2015).
Coach travel and public transport is much better for the environment. See the Big Green Coach pick up locations here and the best way to travel via public transport here.

Three Bin System
We run a three-bin system at the festival, which means every bin station will be formed by 3 bins:
COMPOST – When you buy food from the traders at Community Festival, everything your food comes in is compostable so plates, cutlery and napkins can be placed in the compost bins along with the food scraps. Please make sure NO PLASTIC goes into the compost.
RECYCLE – Plastic bottles, aluminium cans, newspapers, magazines and clean and dry cardboard (no used greasy pizza boxes as these do not recycle).
GENERAL WASTE – There should be minimal left over that goes into General Waste.
Bin Your Butts
Every butt has to be picked up by hand, so it would be awesome if you did not flick your cigarette and put it out before you bin it.
Tap water is free. Please feel free to refill your bottles at the taps provided.
