Glastonbury asks people to 'Love the farm, leave no trace'
The founder of the Glastonbury Festival has been presented with the Green World Award in recognition of his commitment to preserving the environment.
Mr Eavis received the award at the MIDEM music industry conference in Cannes, south of France.
The festival takes place each year in June on Worthy Farm in Somerset.
In 2008 it ran with the eco message "Love the farm, leave no trace" and included biodegradable tent pegs and compostable beer cups.
The major causes supported by Glastonbury Festival are Oxfam, Greenpeace and Wateraid.
The first Green World Award, presented at MIDEM 2008, paid tribute to the organisers of Live Earth, the Roskilde Festival and the Paleo Festival Nyon.
