Draft: How to Stay Plastic Free at Glastonbury Festival

Single use plastic drinks bottles will not be available to purchase at this year's Glastonbury Festival, or even available backstage, in production, catering or dressing rooms. It's an amazing step in the right direction that the organisers are encouraging ticket-holders to headliners to make small everyday changes and we hope every other festival takes note.
Glastonbury Festival or shall we say Green Glastonbury and their campaign 'Love Worthy Farm - Leave no Trace' promotes Reuse, Reduce, Respect. "We are striving to leave as little an imprint on the land here as we possibly can" and particularly reduce the 40 tonnes of plastic bottles that were recycled at the festival in 2017!
 
So, if you're heading to Glasto or any other festival this summer, here's a round-up of our Plastic Free Festival must haves.
Reusable Water Bottle
Glastonbury festival are encouraging all Festival-goers to use a reusable water bottle and refill it at any of the hundreds of free water taps around the Glastonbury site (see map above).
 
Our insulated reusable water bottles keep liquids cold for 24 hours and hot for 12 hours and our sky blue water bottle is 500ml.
 
Bamboo Spork
How about avoiding disposable cutlery too? Our super tiny spork won't take up any space at all and comes with a cork pouch to keep it clean in your bag. Use it all festival weekend and beyond.
 
Stainless Steel Leak Proof Lunchbox
 
Want to take it a step further...Our leakproof lunchbox has got you covered. We strongly recommend a leakproof lunchbox so you can put it in our backpack without worrying about leaks.
Rice Husk Coffee Cup
Want a smaller, lighter cup to take to the festival. Our Rice Husk coffee cup is made from waste material and keeps drinks hot or cold for 90 minutes. This cup is perfect for not only your morning coffee but your soft and alcoholic drinks which you can keep re-filling at the bar (unfortunately not for free!). The white flap on the top acts as a handle but also once shut, as pictured, makes the cup totally leakproof. Available in duck egg blue or dusky pink.
 
Reusable Stainless Steel Straws
Take enough reusable straws for your and your mates. Plastic won't be available but paper not only go soggy, take more emissions to make than plastic so aren't the most environmentally friendly.
 
Plastic Free Toiletries
 
Keep your tent plastic free too with out selection of plastic free toiletries. Our top picks are organic dry shampoo, shampoo beauty kubes, soap bar, deodorant in a paper tube, bamboo toothbrush and toothpaste. Check out all our toiletries here.
A few more ideas to make your festival more sustainable...
 
Be Kind Tee
 
Spread kindness during the festival season with our organic cotton BE KIND tee. Make sure it passes the #30wears test before purchasing so it's a sustainable choice.
 
Recycled Jewellery
 
We all want to make a statement and show our individuality so if you're planning on purchasing jewellery for your next festival, check out out recycled silver range. An investment piece and handmade by the sea in Essex.
 
Eco Glitter
 
Finally, no festival is complete without glitter. Our eco glitter is biodegradable and made from a compostable plant based film. Available singularly or in a set with gel and application brush.
The glitter is very stable, biodegradation is only initiated in soil, compost or a waste water/ocean environment where micro-organisms are present. Over time the glitter will be metabolized by micro-organisms into carbon dioxide, water and biomass.
If you're heading to Glastonbury or any other festival, keep in green and don't forget to take any snaps of our products at the festival.
