Help us get five of Australia’s leading music festival on board with #BYOBottle
We’ve chosen these five festivals carefully.
Byron Bay Bluesfest, The Falls, Groovin the Moo, Laneway and Splendour in the Grass are all very big festivals with a major impact. But they’re also all thoughtful members of our music scene. We’re in conversation with all of them already, and we believe that each of them, in their own way, is getting ready to move.
But, for a huge event, it’s a big and somewhat confronting step to choose to go plastic bottle free. They need support and encouragement from artists and from punters, reassuring them that we’ll back their move, that we want them to do it!
These festivals recognise the horrible impact on the environment from throw-away plastic bottles. They’ve seen the photos of dead birds, as we all have. They’ve grappled with the vast piles of rubbish. They know they have to act. They’ve seen the leadership of festivals like Caloundra Music Festival, Illawarra, Woodford and THE PLOT. And they’re willing to follow suit. As long as we help.
We’re asking them to do something pretty big. But what we’re asking you to do is super easy.
All you need to do is sign the open letter!
