Greening Etruria Canals Festival 

The festival committee are trying to cut down on the environmental impact of this year’s festival, and have worked with Keele University and Stopford Energy to help us create a sustainability plan for the event.  As part of this we’ll be adopting some schemes (like a deposit system for cups) to try and reduce waste created by the festival and also looking at initiatives to enable more people to travel to the event by bicycle or public transport details to be confirmed nearer the time.  If you have some ideas or would like to know more please do get in touch.
