The charity supports projects run by volunteers which we showcase at our event but are available for other events
Crock n Rock
A washing up service with plates for hire. Aiming to reduce waste through eliminating the need for disposables and to enable customers to arrive at our event by bike or public transport by ensuring they don’t need to bring the kitchen sink
Our volunteers also collect, wash up, and deliver for caterers for a fee. The Crock n Rock stall is situated in the Markets area of the event and is handy for customers eating out

Staffed recycling facility working to clean stream and reduce water use. This is both educational and a method of quantifying what our event is producing in terms of reusable or recyclable materials
The Resource Centre provides hand washing from a ‘Tip Tap’ which minimises water use
Staff help ensure waste is thoroughly separated and cleaned before disposal. This allows every waste stream to be identified and quantified.
