We're making it our mission to minimise the impact we're having on the environment.
Supporting a certified carbon reduction programme is a great way to mitigate the emmissions caused by transporting goods from one event to another. There are many projects across the world that include carbon avoidance and clean, renewable energy generation.
Based on our 2019 averages, the trucks used to transport the accommodation units to and from festivals resulted in an average of 7.3kg of CO2 emmissions per accommodation structure.
Carbon offsetting schemes can mitigate the pollution caused by road haulage, either by taking back CO2 from the atmosphere by growing new trees, or by mitigating fossil fuel use by supporting green alternatives.
In 2020 we've switched our pallet wrap to a more eco-friendly biodegradable alternative in order to reduce the amount of non-compostable plastic going to landfill. We're also working with manufacturers to develop long lasting re-usable packaging products in order to avoid single use packaging.
“I used Podpads last year and this year encouraged friends to join me too.!”
“We were drier and had electricity!”
“It's a much more comfortable and a safer environment than the camping idea”
“Had an absolutely fabulous time and wouldn't hesitate to come back again ! Met some lovely people in our street (as we called it) and have made some fabulous new friends. A brilliant concept !! Thank you Podpads”
“Wonderful, so nice to get a decent night sleep on a bed and be able to charge phones.”
“My daughter stayed in a Podpad at the Isle of Wight, and as a seasoned festival goer, said she wouldn't ever camp again. I thought that was a good recommendation and thought we'd give it a try. Now, we feel the same!”
