Reduce. Reuse. Recycle.
Sustainability & awareness of our impact on the local environment & community is a fundamental consideration for B7s planning. We are always looking to introduce new initiatives to reduce the B7s footprint and welcome suggestions from all.
We’re working hard to reduce single use plastics, increase recycling, and strive to make B7s an example to other events. Please help us in our mission to keep our little part of the world beautiful.
We are lucky enough to call Bournemouth and it’s surroundings our home, and are proud to able to bring thousands of people here for one weekend a year and show-off what the area has to offer.
We are fully aware of the impact that our event can have for local residents, and therefore we work closely with our community, and provide a dedicated phone line throughout Bournemouth 7s so that residents can contact us with any concerns they may have.
Travel is typically the largest source of emissions from live events. We’re working with the charity ecolibrium to tackle these impacts.
This year we’re reducing carbon emissions wherever possible by offering more sustainable ways to get to the event and giving you the option to balance unavoidable emissions through ecolibrium’s climate solutions programmes:
Trees+ which supports tree planting, rainforest protection ecosystem regeneration
Energy Revolution which invests in projects that create clean renewable energy.
Use ecolibrium’s online Travel Carbon Calculator to work out your travel emissions to the event and balance them with a donation to one of their climate solutions programmes.
ecolibrium is a live events industry response to the climate crisis – a community of events, festivals, suppliers, artists and music companies taking action to reduce travel impacts and invest in climate solutions.
Since 2015, ecolibrium has worked with over 60 events and 40 suppliers to balance the carbon emissions from over 13 million travel miles. They provide resources, tools, advice and inspiration to reduce travel emissions and invest in climate solutions – supporting ecosystem protection, regeneration and clean energy generation.

The whole B7s team joined an effort to give Bournemouth town centre a proper clear up as part of the Great British Spring Clean.
Getting their hands dirty by litter picking throughout Bournemouth parks, roads and other public areas, they joined over 40 other volunteers in collecting over 70 bags of waste.
