At Nozstock we aim to reduce our environmental impact every year by running fun, green activities and making it easier for festival goers to make greener choices. We are very pleased to be awarded a Commended Award from A Greener Festival in 2014 and an Improvers Award in 2016 and 2017. We were also shortlisted for the Greener Festival Award at the UK Festival Awards in 2014 and 2016. Thumbs up to all the staff, volunteers, traders, performers and revellers who do their bit to keep Nozstock clean and green.

This year we are getting drastic on single use plastic! We are asking everyone to ‘Get Ready To Refill’ and use the delicious, free water available form all our taps and bars to refill their water bottles. All our food traders use biodegradable plates and cutlery and we have joined the Association of Independent Festivals Final Straw campaign to ban plastic straws from festivals. We are also encouraging stalls, performers and festival goers to ditch the old fashioned plastic glitter in favour of shiny planet-happy biodegradable glitter.
We encourage people to leave the gas guzzlers at home and therefore charge for car parking. However, if you are bringing a car, save some petrol and lift share with GoCarShare, a wonderfully green scheme for getting to the Farm. Check out the Nozstock page for details and add your journey, whether you are driving or looking for a lift, and they will match you with someone going the same way. Score some eco-points and make some new festival friends.
You’ll also see an exciting range of green workshops and activities for all ages, from funky junk workshops to willow weaving. Be sure to check out our programme to keep up to date with everything – there’s more green initiatives at Nozstock than you can shake a stick at!
