Glastonbury Festival Ban Single-Use Plastics!

The British music festival has, for the first time ever, banned the sale of single-use plastic drinks bottles at their upcoming 2019 festival. There will also be no bottled water available backstage or in production, catering, and dressing room areas. Not even sucking dick will help you get your hands on Evian at this festival!

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."
