Junction 2 x Tree-Nation

Wed 20th Nov

Junction 2 Main Stage by Night

Help us offset our CO2 emissions.

For every £1 you donate, a tree is planted on your behalf

"There is a magic machine that sucks carbon out of the air, costs very little and builds itself. It's called a tree." - Greta Thunberg

Since starting Junction 2 in 2016, we’ve actively focused on minimising the environmental impact our festival produces. We maximise the amount of biodegradable waste we compost through the use of Vegware and compostable cutlery at food traders, and our onsite waste management team, Greenbox, efficiently separate and recycle as much material as possible. We’ve been using reusable water bottles for staff and artists, and finally introduced our reusable cup system for the public last year as well. We also re-use any material and signage from show to show. While successful, these aren’t enough compared to climate change’s current pace. In a bid to further offset the CO2 emissions our festival produces, we’ve taken it a step further with the help from our friends at Tree-Nation.

”Junction

Our Friends at Tree Nation facilitate re-greening and reforestation programmes across the globe, emphasising their efforts on regions where forests, biodiversity and livelihoods are most threatened. They have made tree-planting easier and more fun, attracting more and more people into the cause of reforesting our planet. With 80% of all terrestrial biodiversity living in forests and trees and 27% of all species on the brink of extinction, we think this is a great cause to get behind.

How to donate?

When buying a Junction 2 ticket, look out for the option to donate during check-out on the various platforms that allow it. If you have already bought your ticket, you still have the opportunity to donate and offset both your and our carbon emissions! We’ve set up a bespoke ticket type on various ticket platforms without Booking Fee so that the full amount is donated to Tree-Nation directly.
