We were ecstatic to win the Green Supplier Award at this years’ Festival Supplier Awards. The awards ceremony is an annual chance for festival suppliers to connect and celebrate achievements in the industry, from bars to toilets, from sound systems to green initiatives.
Our story in the UK events industry began in 2014, when Loowatt piloted its first event waterless toilet trailer at Latitude Festival, with funding support from Innovate UK.
In 2015, we built two more units and provided toilets to several festivals including Port Eliot and Lambeth Country Show.
In 2016, we expanded our fleet to 7 trailers and served 9 events including Port Eliot, Wilderness and Festival No.6, proving that our robust technology is here to stay.
In 2016 Loowatt also won RELX Group Environmental Challenge and Green Supplier & Innovation Award at the Showman’s Show.
Victoria Chapman, Sustainability Coordinator for Festival Republic, presented the Green award and the award category was sponsored by Vision 2025, a pledge conceived as part of The Show Must Go On report. Vision 2025 brings together festivals that wish to take action to create a sustainable future. The ever-growing list of participating festivals includes Reading & Leeds, Shambala and Latitude Festival.
