I've been following Chris's work for 10 years now through A Greener Festival conferences and Julie's Bicycle since the initial meeting with Jazz back in the day! My own concierge company has always promoted the most ethical and environmentally friendly solutions where possible and having been in the music industry 30 years now, I recognise that this initiative is essential and am grateful to everyone involved for their dedication and hard work towards making this industry easier to work in sustainably and the planet a better place. Thank you.

Festivals are a great learning ground, providing a space for sharing thinking, and trialling new ways of doing things and building community, but they have to come in line with the values many of them expound. I hope this bit of work will make it easier for producers to make positive and sustainable decisions.

Hello We are a beef company based in Australia and our industry's direct impact on greenhouse gas production via methane emission is vigorously reported. However, less is reported or known about the indirect effect of participants further downstream including the consumer via food waste. Therefore, we would like to support this balanced and collective vision for protecting our future. Secondly, I would like to support my friend Mark Laurie. Thirdly, festivals were a memorable part of my time in London, and giving back via the this project feels right too. Thanks Patrick
