Body & Soul in partnership with Native Events signed the Green New Deal in October 2019. This is an initiative of the Dutch Government involving 18 other European festivals in order to achieve *circularity by 2025. The Green New Deal creates new alliances with international festivals and will provide support and toolkits over the 5 years of the rollout of the deal. *A circular model is a closed-loop system that aims to eliminate waste by maximising the continual use of resources through design, reuse, remanufacturing and refurbishment.

    In 2019 Body&Soul implemented a festival wide Ban on Single-Use Plastics, replacing all plastic drinking bottles with resealable cans, reusable bottles and free drinking water sitewide.

    In 2018, Body & Soul were the first Irish festival to ever receive the Highly Commended Award and a nomination for the International Greener Creative Award with Greener Festival Awards, the international accreditation for festivals working to reduce their environmental impact.

    In 2017, we introduced smart power plans, compostable serveware, green trader awards, and pioneered the first solar-powered stage in Ireland

    In 2015 we introduced the US&YOU (leave no trace) campsite - which has grown from a 300 capacity campsite to over 6000 in 2019. It is our goal to have 100% of our campers choose us&you by 2022.

    Since 2014, Body & Soul has increased recycling by 70%, now recycling 60% of the entire festival waste
