Festival-goers are being encouraged to bring their own reusable bottles to refill at the drinking taps around the site. Free drinking water will also be available from all bars and charity WaterAid will triple the number of its kiosks at the site.
The following statement was shared on their website:
"Our partners Greenpeace estimate that, globally, up to 12.7 million tonnes of plastic end up in our oceans each year. Greenpeace advises that by far the best way to avoid plastic pollution is to reduce plastic usage. With more than one million plastic bottles sold at Glastonbury 2017, we feel that stopping their sale is the only way forward."
