Edinburgh Fringe Festival, 2018
In 2018, Staging Change founder, Alice Boyd, launched the #SustainableFringe campaign with her theatre company, Poltergeist, to challenge fellow Edinburgh Fringe shows to commit to three challenges around plastic, paper and material waste.
Over the summer, the campaign rallied over 100 individuals and theatre companies around green action.
The campaign had coverage from the local: The
Student Newspaper, to the national: Sky News. It
also attracted praise from prominent voices in the
sustainability world – Keep Scotland Beautiful,
Terry A’Hearn the CEO of SEPA – and the arts world
– Lyn Gardner.
