Cork County Council & Cobh Tidy Towns – greening the Cobh Peoples’ Regatta

Greening your local festival, street event, or market is a good idea – and is a perfect project for a Tidy Towns group.

You can start small doing little things like ensuring all waste is segregated.

These events are great for raising awareness with stands on food waste, composting and other waste prevention options.

Think about other ideas involving water and travel, there are many examples from the local authorities involved in LAPN, from all over Ireland.

If it’s a large event, you can get local businesses involved too.

A checklist and other material with a list of festivals that have been greened from all over Ireland is available at the Green Your Festival website.

Your local authority might be able to help you – contact details here.
