PLASTIC FREE

Reusable Water Bottles

  • Glass and stainless steel are two of the easiest most readily available options on the market that fit into everyday life easily. If you move around a lot in your everyday life, we suggest picking up a stainless steel bottle due to their light weight and longevity. These bottles last for years and are great for use from the youngest to the oldest family member. 

  • You can pick up a stainless steel bottle at the festival from our Sustainable Stall sellers! 

  • Keep your water needs in check using the helpful 'TAP' app! The google map to find free water wherever you go!

 

Reusable Food Containers

  • Food served at the festival will be provided in biodegradable and or compostable packaging.

  • If you would like to take it a step further and reduce waste, why not bring your own glass or stainless steel containers from home? This is especially great if you want to buy some extra treats to take home. (We know we will be buying extra serves to enjoy later - the food looks so amazing this year!
