Please consider car sharing to Shambala this year.
With the average 100 mile car journey leading to over 20 kg of CO2 being produced, sharing has the potential to reduce the festival’s carbon footprint considerably. 63% of Shambala’s carbon footprint comes from audience travel, so we can have a real impact if we reduce the amount of car journeys.
Finally, there is a slick and easy-to-use car sharing site – goCarShare, who this year are linking up 1000s of passengers with car drivers meaning everyone can get where they need to go, sharing time, cost, sandwiches, music and of course saving CO2.
It’s a great way to save money if you are driving and, as it is built around Facebook, you can see if your friends are going, find like-minded people to travel with and check people out before agreeing to share.
So if you’re driving, or need a lift, click HERE and share the journey.
Please make sure you have the correct Vehicle Pass and please make a carbon donation when buying tickets if you are able (see below).
Distances for guidance:
- From Birmingham it is only 45 miles and takes a ridiculous 47 minutes.
- From Bristol it is 120 miles and takes a very manageable 2 hours.
- From London it is 80 miles and takes a very do-able 2 hours.
- From Sheffield it is 95 miles and takes a measly 1 and half hours.
- From Penzance it is a long way but it’s well worth it!
