Every year thousands upon thousands of tons of waste is created at festivals across the country, most of which will go to landfill or into an incinerator, and a large part of this waste is perfectly usable survival equipment, shelter, bedding, food and clothing.

This is happening all summer long across the U.K and in short, there are a lot of people, such as homeless, refugees and many others who could really use the stuff that is being left behind, all that is missing are the proper channels to get it from waste to wish-list.

We are F.W.R.D. Festival Waste Reclamation and Distribution, a charity set up to divert tents, sleeping bags, bedding, tarps, clothes, shoes and other perfectly usable “waste” away from the incinerator and landfill and towards those who are without such as homeless, refugees and anyone else who could use it.

We work with, or preferably just in front of, the clean up companies at festivals to salvage as many usable items as possible. These items will then be deep cleaned, sorted and given those who are in need, both local to the festival and further afield.

Help is needed from Hands On London volunteers.
