I’m sure we’ve all seen the publicity in recent times about the drive to reduce single use plastics which is having a harmful effect on sealife. We try and do our bit to be more sustainable at the festival. Some years ago we introduced reusable bar ‘glasses’ which are available for a small refundable deposit. We found that these made a huge dint on the amount of rubbish we collect from the festival site over the weekend. This year, we’re introducing reusable water bottles which will be on sale in our merchandise tent – these can be filled at the drinking water stands around the periphery of the main arena. We’ll also be encouraging our stewards and artists to bring their own water bottles. Ofcourse in true festival tradition, you can just bring your pewter tankard and use it for the beverages of your choice, this year, next year, the year after….
