Leeds Festival Essentials: 3 Smart & Sustainable Tips for Campers

Whether you are a first-time attendee or regular at the Leeds Festival, you might have heard about its sustainable change initiative

The 3-day live music event aims to preserve the picturesque green spaces of Bramham Park by promoting zero-waste and no-plastic policies.  That means event planners request attendees to keep the fields free from non-biodegradable, environmentally harmful rubbish. We teach you how to support Leeds Fest’s eco-conscious endeavours through sustainable tips.

Here’s what you can do:

Carry a Bamboo Camping Cutlery Set

When you’re out camping in the Yorkshire countryside, you won’t find any corner shops to grab forks and spoons. That’s why packing a personal bamboo cutlery set here can be a life-saver.

Our sets have the standard utensils (aka a fork, spoon, and knife). Plus, something extra (bamboo straw and chopsticks) for adventurous foodies. The budget-friendly camping cutlery pack can handle hot and cold food to support versatile usage. 

More importantly, the set comes with colourful naturally-dyed hemp pouches. You can easily slip it into your backpack when you attend the Leeds Festival. Their pocket-friendly design allows you to satisfy food cravings without getting your hands dirty!

Say No to Plastic with Reusable Bamboo Straws

The hot and humid conditions are part of the annual Leeds Fest. Attendees often bring reusable water bottles to beat the heat. Yet, this isn’t enough when you spend hours under the sun. 

Therefore, we recommend investing in reusable bamboo straws here. Our multi-sized packs are versatile, durable, and sustainable. They allow you to enjoy a bevvy of refreshing drinks. More importantly, you won’t have to reposition the straw every time you move.

Like the camping cutlery set, they come in a reusable hemp pouch. The organic casing protects straws from dust and germs when not in use.

Camping with Friends: Stock-Up on Disposable Cutlery Sets

If you’re camping at Leeds Festival with friends and family, you might want to upgrade your cutlery set. These disposable options here are excellent.

The party pack caters to a group of ten with a knife, spoon, and fork per person. You’ll get a naturally-dyed hemp pouch for easy storage and travel.
