Love the Farm, leave no trace is supported by the festivals’ three main charities, Greenpeace, Oxfam and WaterAid, who will all be doing their bit to ensure the farm is loved and returned to a working state as soon as possible.
WaterAid are dedicated to providing some of the world’s poorest people with clean drinking water and toilets, and will be encouraging everyone to Love the Loo.
We will have a graffiti wall near the Pyramid stage for people to express their love for the loo, as well as adding your name to the End Water Poverty petition, demanding that the G8 agree a global action plan for sanitation and water.
We also have the famous latrines in Kings Meadow, and ladies can come and try out our female urinals at one of the many She Pees sites around the festival. You can also pop by the WaterAid stand by the Pyramid Stage for a refreshing drink of water, as well as finding out more about WaterAid or the End Water Poverty campaign.
The Greenpeace Field has been transformed this year into a garden paradise. Woodland areas, sofas made of grass, outdoor galleries and garden areas will make it the perfect spot to chill out from the madness of the festival, have a cool drink, some great organic food, and send us some photos of you getting back to nature..
We will also have carbon neutral hot showers, a mini eco-house for you to nose around, as well as water recycling reed beds – all of which demonstrate “one planet living” – how it’s possible to live well without stretching the planet’s resources.
Right now we’re using the raw materials of three planets, but with a little more care and more respect for our environment we can reverse this trend.
Oxfam is asking festival-goers what gets their knickers in a twist!
Wherever you see Oxfam volunteers with one of ten giant pairs of knickers emblazoned with the burning issues of the day, we’ll be asking people to put names against the problems that really concern you.
All the opinions will be collected up in washing baskets in the Oxfam stand next to the Pyramid Stage, which will bring together the collective 'dirty laundry' of Glastonbury.
We hope to get at least 10,000 of you involved. Oxfam will then be able to gauge the Glastonbury mood!
Elsewhere, Oxfam's famous trading stalls are selling everything from feather boas and basques to knitted blankets and waterproofs, as we aim to raise £25,000 across our two onsite shops.
To find out more, visit the Greenpeace field, or the Oxfam and WaterAid stands by the Pyramid stage.
