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.
We signed the Festival Vision 2025 in 2015 with an industry shared view to reduce our greenhouse emissions by 50% by 2025.
Single use plastic
We have banned single use plastic cutlery at Community and all food stalls use only compostable packaging.
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.
Last year 5 tonnes each of cups and bottles were returned to our deposit return points – that’s the weight of two African elephants!
