Jane has been working in festival/concert production for over ten years, specialising in sustainable infrastructure and the application of sustainable technologies. As Sanitation Manager at Glastonbury and Toilet, Water and Waste Manager at Boomtown Fair, her main focus has been on sanitation management and looking into options to improve and advance that sector within the festival community. From compost toilets to ‘Pee Power’, she believes that helping to develop sustainable sanitation technologies will not only will benefit the event scene, but can also have an impact on the way sanitation is approached in developing countries. Getting sanitation and sustainability right at festivals can change minds and the world.
As Sanitation Manager at Glastonbury Festival since 2014, she implemented site-wide compost toilets. This was a first for Glastonbury and set a precedent for the festival industry with 1,111 compost toilets in use on one site. She was also in charge of the management of over 5,000 toilets during the event and general onsite liquid emptying logistics. She has also introduced a couple of locations on site where there is the promotion of sustainable sanitary products for women, hoping this will help to raise awareness and contribute to campaigning for sustainable and affordable products.
At Boomtown Fair, she is responsible for Toilets, Water and Waste and continues to find innovative solutions to these site-wide facilities.
J Healy Productions is also on the road with the WaterAid Good Loos project at over five UK festivals including Latitude and Shambala, promoting the importance of good sanitation and clean water.
