The Heathfield Agricultural Show aims to reduce the environmental impact of its one day Show in order to make a positive contribution towards reducing harmful waste products. The Show has started to work more closely with its contractors and visitors to better control the use of environmentally harmful products and also to look to use energy more efficiently.
A huge portion of our sustainability programme cannot be done without our visitors help. We encourage attendees to take their rubbish home with them, bring their own coffee cups, plates and cutlery, recycle when they're on the Showground and bring their own water bottles.
We are already working hard to encourage our trade stands to make changes to the way they organise their stands to be more sustainable and in our trade stand competition we introduced a new annual 'Sustainability Award' in 2022. All our trade stands will be encouraged to take part in this competition.
As we move towards Show day new initiatives will be introduced so we hope you will follow our progress as we make steps towards becoming carbon neutral.
