When it comes to looking after the planet, we at Tangerine Fields like to think we do our bit.
Reusing is at the heart of what we do, this beats recycling anyday. All our tents are reused until they can't stay up late any more, then we take their good bits and pass them onto younger fresher models, getting the maximum use out of everything before its retired to the recycle bin.
Going to festivals up and down the country, we need to take care to minimise the amount of transportation of stock, as this could add serious size to our carbon footprint. Tangerine Fields have therefore chosen storage spots close to festival sites so that stock is only taken the shortest distance possible.
Our impact on a campsite is minimal. We leave a place as we found it and encourage all our customers to do the same. If we all do our bit, the magic of festivals can go on until we're too old to boogie. The headtorches and sleeping bags are yours to take home. All the sleeping bags left behind are donated to various local, national and international charities, including Oxfam, His Church Charity and local scout groups.
2011 & 2012 donations to His Church Charity have already been put to good use being passed on to Muslim Aid who in turn distrubuted them to various organisations.
His Church have also donated sleeping bags to:
Muslim Aid Winter Campaign (Manchester) http://www.muslimaid.org/index.php/what-we-do/uk-development-work
Spires Centre for the Homeless http://www.spires.org.uk/
Compass (Hull) http://www.compass-uk.org/
The below photo is of the recent distribution of aid in Peru. The His Church donation included 2,500 sleeping bags that had been donated by Tangerine Fields in 2013.
