The Grass is Always Greener

965366_10151737504292436_1803888135_oAre you heading to Splendour this weekend? The grass is certainly looking greener for the event after it became one of only three Australian festivals to receive the highest possible result in last year’s ‘Greener Festival Awards’. Festival-goers will notice a few new eco additions around the beautiful North Byron Parklands site, including waterless composting loos (which are also odourless, thankfully), new three-bin waste systems (for general rubbish, recycling and food waste – later fed to some lucky local pigs) and a special camping area, Camp Little-foot Print, where you can bed down for the night in sustainable style. And for those of us that fancy a break from the festival craziness, there’s the chance to get back to nature and get your hands dirty during native tree-planting sessions, with organisers aiming to plant over 2000 trees over the course of the festival. Being green has never sounded so good!
