What a day at Download festival. We have salvaged 4 vans of tents, sleeping bags, roll mats, wellies and a whole load of other random stuff.
There was an awesome bunch of peeps salvaging today from a mix of different grouos including Paris Refugee Ground Support, FWRD - Festival Waste Reclamation and Distribution, LESolidarity and a few others. The majority of the salavaged items have been delivered to and sorted at Derbyshire Refugee Solidarity warehouse
All the items collected with not only benefit Refugee in Europe but also the homeless in England.
There are many other festivals this summer where thousands of tons of perfectly usable it's will be left behind and sent to landfill :'(
If you want to get involved and help salvage this summer then please get in touch.
The more people we have, the more we can save!!
