What We do
WATER REFILL STATIONS & BYO BOTTLE
We have been providing water refill stations around the festival site and promoting a BYO bottle and cup policy since 2015. Thank you to Keep Australia Beautiful WA for funding a project which contributed to the drastic reduction of single-use plastic water bottles, that would otherwise end up into landfill.
2017 STATE CATEGORY WINNER, LITTER PREVENTION & WASTE MANAGEMENT, TIDY TOWNS SUSTAINABLE COMMUNITIES AWARDS
We’re super proud to be the 2017 State Winner in the Tidy Towns Sustainable Community Awards Litter Prevention and Waste Management category, thanks to the festival's Green Steps Initiative. The awards celebrate social and environmental projects in regional communities across Western Australia who are doing the best with local resources. Nannup Music Festival was one of 41 entries for 2017 and the communities were located from Tjuntjuntjara in the east to Pemberton in our South West.
FOSSIL FUEL SPONSORSHIP FREE
We have joined the Oil Sponsorship Free commitment program and we don’t take any oil, coal, or gas corporate sponsorship for our cultural work. We call on our peers and institutional partners to refuse fossil fuel funding too.
We incorporate environmentally themed workshops, panels and screenings into our program, in the hope of affecting attitudes and behaviours in the community.
DISHWASHING STATIONS: BUSH BREAKFAST & MAIN FOOD COURT
Our Bush Breakfast dishwashing station (funded by KAB) is equipped with washable and reusable crockery and cutlery and it serves over 1,000 patrons and volunteers over the festival weekend, completely plastic free.
Our second dishwashing station, also funded by KAB, is located at our main food court and patrons can use the washable crockery and cutlery provided when purchasing food and beverages from our food vendors or wash their own.
SINGLE-USE PLASTIC FREE FOOD STALLS
We ask that our food vendors use only completely compostable takeaway serveware. No plastic, no styrofoam, no "biodegradables", no bottled water.
BACKSTAGE & ONSTAGE WATER
We don't endorse or offer single-use plastic water bottles backstage or onstage. We provide all our artists with free, pre-filled, stainless steel water bottles.
100% RECYCLED TOILET PAPER
We use 100% recycled Who Gives A Crap toilet paper in all our festival portable toilets. And 50% of their profits go towards building toilets and improving sanitation in the developing world.
