A Greener Festival have announced the planting of a 'Festival Wood' - a new five-acre wood that will symbolise music fan's commitment to the environment.
The wood will be a mixture of native deciduous trees that A Greener Festival bosses are hoping will be colonised by wild birds, mammals and insects, but they stress that it isn’t an offsetting scheme and they still encourage using public transport, lift sharing, cycling and walking to reduce environmental footprints.
If you’re going to a festival and you’d like to make a donation, you can in the following ways:
TEXT 'FESTIVAL' or 'festival' TO 82540 and you will plant a tree – £3 will be donated.
TEXT 'GREENER' or 'greener' to 82540 and you will plant two trees – this will cost you £5.
The money you donate will be deducted from your phone – it's called reverse billing.
You can also send a cheque payable to 'A Greener Festival Ltd' and post to 8 Henley Prior, Collier Street, London N1 9JU. A Greener Festival are a formally constituted 'not for profit' company and everything helps.
