The festivals aiming to get rid of single-use plastic by 2021

Festivals aim to go plastic-free by 2021

More than 60 independent British festivals - including Boardmasters and Bestival - have pledged to rid their sites of single-use plastic by 2021. As a minimum, those festivals have committed to banning the use of plastic straws this year. It's hoped that will extend to items such as plastic bottles in the future.
