Bin it to win it – Eco Friendly Beatyard 2019

 

Beatyard are doing various new initiatives this year , and continuing/improving some they did last year.

Eco Bricks is a new thing they are bringing in, and they are going to build some parts of their site with them. Their  ‘Bin It To Win It’ campaign, whereby folks at the festival collect rubbish for us, that we can reuse, you get a free pint per bag you fill !

Another initiative is ‘free tickets for carers’ . Over the last 2 years at the festival in particular Beatyard got alot of emails from carers re access, acts etc for the festival, so last year Beatyard have brought in a policy of ‘free tickets for carers with the people they are caring for’ .

This year they are extending that to ‘everyone who is a carer’ – eg you may want to come to Beatyard for a day off for example. If you email them  and tell them who your caring for – they will sort you a ticket.

So whether its make the festival more environmentally friendly [ by being on a yard and not distributing nature, we’ve a big head start on most festivals ] or working more with their local community/carers/organisation – they are committed to making Beatyard a positive part of any place where it drops it’s anchor 🙂
