Leave No Trace
The Arts by the Sea festival is committed to reducing its own environmental impact and to leave no trace, and their theme this year is Plastic Beach.
The synthetic quality of modern life has made its mark in the seas. Over the last 30 years, millions of tons of plastic have entered the oceans. Global production of plastic now stands at 288 million tonnes per year, of which 10% ends up in the ocean. Oil, radioactive waste, chemical sewage and most visibly – plastics, have found their way into the oceans and stomachs of marine life. Arts by the Sea 2017 is highlighting this issue through our theme Plastic Beach. We hope you’re entertained but also informed by our performances, and leave the festival inspired by what we can all do to help the environment.
Sustainable Dorset will be attending the event to raise awareness and increase interest in sustainability, and to promote the great projects happening across the region. Many of the events feature our local groups and projects.
