Last year saw 2000trees ban plastic and introduce the GreenGoblet cup scheme, which contributed to a six tonne reduction in waste compared to 2018. They also had Frank Water at the festival for the first time, serving 6, 700 litres of chilled filtered water from their kiosks, saving around 13, 500 single use plastic bottles from ended up in landfill or oceans.
In 2020 2000trees will be teaming up with two charities: Attitude Is Everything, who work with audiences, artists and the live music industry to improve Deaf and disabled people’s access to live music; and TREE AID, which works with local communities to help them protect and grow trees, for themselves and for future generations..
