The summer season is fast approaching and the dance floors are patiently awaiting the impending stomps. As we begin to get our festival rig sorted, lets take a little time to think about tangible ways that we can ALL decrease the impact we leave at our favourite places, and the surrounding eco-system.
We love our natural environment and spending time outdoors - and we know you do too! We’ve put together a series of articles to discuss the ways that camping can affect our environment, and small steps we can collectively take to minimise our impact.
This article series discusses how the different factors of a festival environment can impact your body in mind in different ways from everyday life. We want to use our platform to make sure that everyone has the tools to keep themselves safe and happy in a festival environment! This article introduces the series and offers us some festival-specific physical harm reduction tips.
It's not just your physical body you need to think about taking care of in a festival environment - your mind needs some TLC as well! This concluding article contains some tips about looking after your mental health and that of those around you, and information about the awesome resources that Twisted Frequency offers to best look after everyone at our events.
This article explores the effects of camping waste on our beautiful land and all its amazing little critters, and offers some ideas on how to minimise the generation of avoidable waste while camping.
This article looks at the effect camping can have on our rivers and lakes, and all the creatures that live in them. We’ve also got some suggestions on how to lessen our impact on these resources while camping.
This article is about the very scary threat that fire poses to our natural environments. We strongly urge that you think very carefully before ever lighting a fire while spending time outdoors.
This is the conclusion of our Mindful Camping series, and contains our takeaway thoughts from the series. Thanks for reading, we hope you’ve enjoyed the series!
