So I have to say “I am on my soap box for this blog” I was appalled when this popped up on my Facebook, the amount of fly-tipped rubbish was alarming!
To think that many of the people that were there are campaigning against the exact problem above.
Eco-warrior is a self-description for an environmental activist that adopts a ‘hands-on’ effort to save a plot of land.
An environmentalist, or environmental scientist, helps companies and the public make educated choices regarding the environment.
Anti fracking campaigners supports the impacts of climate injustice which will be felt around the world.
Pupils from around the UK went “on strike” on Friday 15th February as part of a global campaign for action on climate change. Students around the country walked out of schools to call on the government to declare a climate emergency and take active steps to tackle the problem.
Here’s a little insight as to what it takes to get those fields you danced the weekend away back to normality.
2017 The clean up, was about £785,000 and was expected to last six weeks. Despite organisers urging festival-goers to take their rubbish with them, and to try to leave “zero waste”, photographs after the event show the field strewn with rubbish.
In 2018 the festival did not go ahead.
This year The entire clean-up is expected to take four weeks and praise has to be given that out of the 55,000 tents only 500 were left behind.
The Daily Mail however called the site “a squalid mess” that “makes a mockery of [the festival’s] eco-posturing”, claiming there was a “sea of bottles, plastic bags, cans, tissues, wet wipes and paper cups … mile after mile of it”. They cheered David Attenborough like a god at Glastonbury, but as the crowd headed home, they left a squalid mess that makes a mockery of their eco-posturing.
So my little rant ends with
‘next year lets make our actions louder than words.
