Current Campaign

BYO Bottle Artist Ambassadors

Australian musicians are taking the lead in getting rid of unnecessary and destructive disposable plastic water bottles. These artists have adopted our Green Drinks Rider and become ambassadors for our BYO Bottle campaign.

BYO Bottle!

Green Music Australia is building a musicians’ movement against plastic pollution and we need you to join!

We’re working with artists, venues and festivals to phase out the use of unnecessary and environmentally destructive disposable plastic water bottles. Find out more about our campaign here.

Artist Ambassadors

You can become an Artist Ambassador for BYO Bottle by adopting our green drinks rider. It tells venues and festivals that you do not want disposable bottles provided as part of your drinks rider, but you do want jugs, taps or refilling stations made available. By doing that, you not only avoid using them yourself, but you also draw the issue to the attention of the venues and festivals you play at, getting them thinking about alternatives and hopefully encouraging them to take broader action.

Simply cut and paste the text in the right hand column of this page and start using it straight away. Let us know that you’ve done so, and we’ll include your picture and quote on this page.

If you want to go further, you can make reusable bottles part of your mechandise, and promote them with a strong environmental message, like Ash Grunwald has done with his gorgeous bottle. Green Music Australia can advise you and help you with sourcing.
