Green Messengers

Leeds and Reading festivals are looking to recruit up to 280 "green messengers" to work in the campsites at each festival, talking to the festival goers about the I-count campaign and encouraging them to be environmentally aware in the disposal of their rubbish, particularly in packing up. Mean Fiddler are keen to alert festival goers to the environmental impact of burning their tents and possessions instead of taking them home or donating them. The organisation, Global Hand is working in association with Mean Fiddler at both events to collect in any left behind tents and possessions for re - use in disaster relief and the green messengers will work with Global Hand on the Monday and Tuesday to help recycle the tents.

Tent burning isn't cool - it pollutes the planet. Help cut the carbon-resuse and recycle stuff to charity. Every green messenger will count in helping stop climate chaos. To learn more see
