The UK’s first zero-waste vegan festival, No Planet B, is set to take place in the Cotswolds on 17-19 August.*

What’s on?

The zero-waste vegan festival is described as ‘TED Talk meets music festival’, where visitors will find classes, workshops and talks by people like vegan activist James Aspey, Earthling Ed, Sea Shepherd and Aine Carlin.

The aim of the festival is to help vegans to take their ethics to the next level and focus on the amount of waste we produce. “The more you learn about these movements, the more you see how intrinsically linked they all are,” the festival organisers say.

“Minimalists, Vegans and Zero-Wasters coming together and sharing their knowledge to create a greener future. Ethical consumerism, permaculture and awareness are all part of this festival and the wider picture. We are creating a space to move into this future.”

There’ll also be talks on permaculture, yoga, relaxation, stalls, and ‘definitely not a plastic cup in sight’. For those looking for some tasty grub to munch on at the festival, there’s plenty of vendors to choose from like Shakey Shakey, Epic Veg Kitchen, En Root, Vegals and many more vendors to come.

Eco-warriors 

The organisers are keen to create an environment where waste-conscious earthlings can relax in a stress-free environment with likeminded eco-warriors.

According to the organisers: “We envisioned a place where like-minded eco-warriors could all relax and enjoy sharing their expertise and life experiences in a beautiful stress-free environment.

“We could’ve launched a day event in London, but it just wouldn’t have offered the complete experience we were after. We needed to be in the open countryside breathing in fresh air, taking time to digest and integrate learning into everyday activities like yoga, eating, relaxing whilst having fun with friends.

“Trying to live a Vegan, Zero Waste and Minimalist lifestyle can often feel isolating and comes with challenges made easier by connecting with others online who share the same values. But we believe No Planet B Festival is the perfect place to bring together these vast online communities so that people can meet in person and unite in spreading a very important message for the planet.”
