Sustainability is very important to Love Supreme and we are constantly reviewing our policies.
Our main focus is on:
- Supply chain awareness; where do our products come from and how do they get here
- Re-Using & Re-purposing.
We have implemented several systems over the last few years to make sure we are doing our bit to make sure that this festival is able to reduce waste and be as environmentally friendly as possible.
We ask that you do your part too.
New for 2019
This year Love Supreme will be working with Bristol based sustainable water charity Frank Water who will serve chilled water across the weekend.
Festival goers are able to get unlimited chilled water refills when you buy one of their reusable bottles: £7 or £11
If you already have a bottle you can buy a wristband for £3.50 and also have unlimited refills for the weekend.
Love Supreme Reusable Coffee Cup
We are introducing a reusable Love Supreme Coffee Cup. The cup is made from bamboo and has a twist lid, with a removable rubber band across the cup.
Customers get a 25p refund on a repurchase of any hot drink on presentation of the cup at all approved Love Supreme Festival Food and Drink Retailers (excludes Bars).
Available to purchase in advance here and collect on site from the Merchandise stand.
