Sustainability At

WEDOYOGA Festival

As a festival, we are conscious of our carbon footprint and attempt to limit this in as many ways as possible. Here are some of the ways in which we do this.

 

Water + Plastic Bottles

 

We encourage visitors to bring their own water bottle which can be refilled at the free taps in the members club house. We  will be selling can water and other drinks.

 

Food & drink

 

We ask all our food vendors to use only eco-friendly plates/cutlery/cups and to recycle and take their rubbish with them.

Infrastructure

 

We re-use infrastructure wherever possible, including décor and signage. Almost all is hired or stored locally wherever possible between uses.

Our Partnership with Re-Fashion

We are so excited to be partnering with Re-Fashion to help raise money for the Rieve Foundation and to give unwanted clothes a second life!

The clothing industry has one of the highest impacts on the planet.  High water use, chemical pollution, transport pollution and landfill all add to the impact on our environment.  It is estimated that 350,000 tons of clothing, over 1 billion items of clothing goes into landfill in the UK every year. Let's make a conscious effect to change this and reuse our old or unwanted clothes!

WEDOYOGA Swap Tent

Grab all your old or unwanted activewear and bring it to the festival! We will be hosting a "Activewear Swap Tent", where you can donate all your old or unwanted activewear. You can choose to donate it straight to Re-Fashion or put it out for someone else to enjoy! All items left at the end of the festival will be collected by Re-Fashion and sold on their website to raise money for the Rieve Foundation.

 

Did you know?

The U.K throws away 350,000 tonnes of good quality clothes each year. In monetary terms that’s £140 million worth of used, but wearable, clothing going to waste. Re-Fashion helps to keep these clothes in the loop, which is why we are so excited to be working with them! 

Re-Fashion is not like other fashion brands.

 

Re-Fashion's Mission

Re-Fashion believes the future of fashion is circular and wants to eliminate clothes waste. For good! They are driven by purpose to reduce Fashion's impact on the environment. They resell unwanted clothes to raise money for sustainable causes. It's not a marketing campaign or green-washing tactic. It's what they do and it's why they're different! 

How Much Goes to Charity?

Re-Fashion believe good causes should earn more from donated clothes. That's why items sold on Re-Fashion.co.uk can earn a charity up to three times more than they would from a charity shop. Full donation values available at re-fashion.co.uk/faq.

FAQs

 

What is Re-Fashion?

Re-Fashion is an online fashion store that raises money for sustainable fashion causes by selling, quality used clothes. All donated by women like you.

 

Why should I donate to Re-Fashion?

The single best thing we can do for the planet is to cut down on our consumption of clothes and reuse them. Re-Fashion makes it easy for your unwanted clothes to find new homes and at the same time funding sustainable initiatives. For the purpose of our festival we will be asking for any unwanted or old Activewear!

 

How much of my donation supports good causes?

Depending on the original value between 20% - 60% of the sale price goes to the cause. Generally better quality items raise more money.
