THE LOVEBOX festival has signed up to the 10:10 challenge to reduce its carbon footprint and become even greener this year.

This year's event in Victoria Park has a line-up including Bow musician Dizzee Rascal, Grace Jones and Roxy Music and has pledged to have totally recyclable or biodegradable drinks containers at the festival.

It has joined the 10:10 campaign to make festivals throughout the UK even greener this year.

The campaign is encouraging people and businesses to cut their carbon footprint by ten per cent this year.

Staff will be working with green company Julie's Bicycle to reduce carbon emissions from the site at look at ways of reducing water and energy use and cutting down on waste during the festival which runs from July 16 to 18.

Lovebox already asks festival-goers to get there by public transport rather than car and for their suggestions of ways to make the event even greener.
