Since the lovely markets traders arrived on site on Monday, a dedicated team of volunteers has been roaming the site asking them about what they are doing to be clean, green and fair at Glastonbury.
And today, we presented the Green Trader Awards to a handful of the traders do the most to reduce their impact and source ethically. There are a whole bunch of awards covering things like energy efficiency, ethical trade and sustainable food as well as the big ones – Gold and Silver (one each for a food and non-food stall). And the winners in 2013 are… drumroll please…
Gold Food Award: Fat Belly (next to Croissant Neuf stage)
Silver Food Award: The Grill (next to the Acoustic Tent)
Gold Non-Food Award: Miss Katie Cupcake (Circus Field)
Silver Non-Food Award: Foliklo (West Holts)
These are our other award winners…
Sustainable Food Award: Fat Salad (near Pyramid)
Ethical Trade Award: Forage (near West Holts)
Energy Efficiency Award: Truly Crumptious (near Avalon Stage).
And for the first time ever, we asked the public to vote on twitter for their People’s Choice Award and Love Zimbabwe (behind Williams Green) were the very happy and proud winners of that one! Thanks to everyone who voted!
Go and visit these traders and see what they are doing. Let us know what you think @Green_Traders
