Details of experience:
I work in event sustainability because I have seen the negative impacts events can have, and I have seen just how good conscious event practice can be.

I began volunteering at festivals almost 10 years ago in waste management, and 9 years later I have started my own dedicated event sustainability business.

I have years of experience working site builds, small to very large scale events, council events to massive multi-day festivals, and have had the opportunity to try new & radical forms of event sustainability.

Myself and my team have gone to huge lengths to save resources from landfill, introduce complex reusable systems for food traders, introduce alternative power sources and challenge patrons to be more sustainable event-goers.
