Today we went to the second Groat Street Festival in Stirling. We couldn’t make it last year due to a wedding, so was determined to get there this time, and it was worth it….
I really loved the trees and vegetation in pots that they managed to bring in and place around.
It was also impressive to see the event try to be plastic free: people were encouraged to bring their own plate/cup; there were several washing stations for cups and plates to be reused and water bottle refill stations. Plus, I was heartily encouraged by the vendor when I produced my own plate for lunch 🙂
Congratulations to Transition Towns Stirling and Eco Faeries (Faerie Cara) for pulling together such a wonderful community event!
If you missed out this year, make sure you mark it in your diary for the end of October next year (I’m hoping they’ll do it all again 🙂
