Never ending ideas
DESIGNING FOR A CHANGE
Here comes the knotting of a circular loop: creating bags out of leftover tent fabric. Rachel Kelly is a textile designer making bags from discarded festival tents to reduce textiles in landfill, and the epiphany of a circular economy. Both Good Intentions and Clunes are in the works of feeding this green festival loop. Our salvaged gear will be going into Rachel's textile pile before becoming beautiful bags, happy for many years to come - long past their 'single-use' shelf life which usually ends on the last day of a festival.
A CAMPING STORE COLLABORATION
Collingwood camping store owner Tom is pssionate about tackling the festival waste issue as a keen observer of the festival scene for many years now. Together with Clunes Hire, Good Intentions will provide 'HIRE' services offering a premium quality and sustainable festival camping solution. Our 'REPAIR' work would get an additional lift with the much-skilled Tom joining forces to fix it before you bin it. More exciting ideas to be announced.
The Big Idea 2019
2019 SOCIAL ENTERPRISE WINNER- HELPING PEOPLE HELP THEMSELVES
Good Intentions was first pitched to The Big Issue and PricewaterhouseCoopers, in a social enterprise competition called The Big Idea. We combined our love for festival sustainability and out-of-home-care youth; providing seasonal work opportunities through setting up tents at festivals. Our further impact is aimed at waste reduction as single use tents are phased out. This goal is something we're endlessly working towards to.
