James Molkenthin started this petition to Kieran (Camplight)

Camplight have enjoyed 5 years on site at Glastonbury festival as a campsite clear up solution.


Thanks to Glastonbury festival and their support of our green grass roots project, we’ve been able to grow so far and demonstrate a green alternative for event goers who would otherwise bring a tent to leave at an event.


In 2017 Camplight were asked to move from Pennard Hill but we fought to keep our location, as a place for Camplight to grow in to a real event changing organisation.


But against our best efforts, in 2018 we are again being asked to move Camplight off site, outside the fence, with the other 47 tent providers.


This proposition of the leaving event unfortunately cannot fit the Camplight model – how can we educate and tackle on-site waste, if Camplight is OFF-SITE?


A prime location from where Camplight can educate, propagate and serve as a real restorative project is core to the conversations that take place in our campsite hub. From our research in 2017 we know that:


- 33% customers have left a tent at a festival before
- 92% customers have never glamped
- 88% GENERAL PUBLIC agree that Camplight should get a prime location


Camplight is designed as a restorative business. If it cannot demonstrate a green alternative for event goers and raise awareness of waste issues, then project, in its current form, has no purpose.


So in summary we LOVE the FARM. We Leave no Trace. And we are doing everything we can to work with Glastonbury festivals to try to come to an arrangement where we can continue - which is why we need your support!
