Over 60 UK Music Festivals Vow To Ban Single-Use Plastic By 2021 On Their Grounds

Posted by on April 23, 2018 at 12:58 pm

UK music festivals like Bloodstock, 2000 Trees, ArcTanGent, Cropredy, and way more are all about saving the Earth recently. According to a report from Louder Sound, over 60 UK music festivals have vowed to ban single-use plastic on their grounds by 2021. As a start, all the below festivals have announced they will not be using plastic straws on their site, and plan to ban more and more until they're completely free of it by 2021.

Here's what Association Of Independent Festivals CEO Paul Reed had to say about the move in conjunction with the RAW Foundation.

"It is encouraging and inspiring that so many AIF members have taken this initiative and pledge on-board without hesitation and are taking a collective stand against single-use plastic.

“This is one of the most critical issues facing our businesses and wider society. By working together as an industry and taking affirmative action, we can make a tangible difference.”

Here's the full list of festivals that plan on banning plastic, and we're hoping to see more metal festivals on there as it grows!
