CarFest Going Green

CarFest is committed to Sustainability and have over the past few years been making efforts to improve what we do as event organisers to reduce our Carbon Footprint.

Since 2017, we have reduced CarFest’s primary emissions by 27%.

We did this by…

  • We sent ZERO waste to landfill from CFS
  • Introducing reusable cups on bars, replacing 257,817 single use plastic cups
  • Banning all single use plastic serve-wear
  • Banning the sale of plastic bottles
  • Selling canned water not plastic bottles
  • Installing water stations across the site
  • Replacing 75% of festoon lightbulbs with LEDs
  • Collecting almost 5,000kgs of mixed recycling
  • Introducing compost toilets in Eden
  • Collecting 60kgs of hazardous waste
  • Handing out 7,000 to 8,000 bin bags

 

By 2020, CarFest will be Carbon Neutral on our PRIMARY emissions. We will achieve this by:

  • Reduce primary emissions by 50%
  • Offset remaining emissions by planting 1000 trees
