Green Truro Festival 2019

Transition Truro, with support from Transition Falmouth, had a highly successful four days at the Green Truro Festival last week, along with its partner groups, Wild Truro, Penair Community Garden and the Truro Cycle Campaign. The photos below speak for themselves, but it’s worth noting that 90+ visitors to the Festival took part in our Bottle Top Challenge (to draw attention to plastic pollution) while the Cycle Campaign attracted over 100 punters. The Tools Shed Project also proved particularly popular.

The Transition team fielded a wide range of enquiries ranging from green energy, waste reduction and recycling to air pollution, and where answers were not readily available enquirers were signposted to the appropriate organisation.

Many and varied groups took part in the Festival – too many to mention here – but it’s worth highlighting the presence and work of the hugely inspiring and enterprising company Odyssey Innovation, who had one the world’s first kayak on display, made entirely from marine plastic debris. A great example of the circular economy in action. More information at https://www.marinerecycledkayaks.com/
