We are always trying to find new ways to minimise the impact of the Festival on our environment and, this year, we’re aiming to cut down considerably on the use of plastic bottles. They cause an enormous amount of needless waste, as we provide free tap water from hundreds of taps across the site.
So, we’re stepping up our campaign to encourage Festival goers to bring their own reusable, PBA-free water bottles. Then, instead of buying bottled water, you can fill your bottle for free at any of our 400 drinking water taps.
The steel bottles are priced at £10 and are a not-for-profit initiative. When ticket holders pay their ticket balance (from 1st – 7th April) they will have the option to order one of the stainless steel bottles for collection at the Festival.
As well as filling your water bottle from any of our drinking water taps, you will be able to refill it for free at WaterAid’s five kiosks across the site (similar to the below kiosk, which WaterAid use around the world). At the kiosks, you can also learn more about the charity’s incredible work to give everyone, everywhere access to safe water and sanitation.
We hope you’ll join us in helping to make Glastonbury 2014 as plastic-free as possible (and save yourself a few quid on bottled water in the process).
