Bye, bye, single-use plastics!
This year at Wonder Fields we are cutting out single-use plastics across all of our bars, traders and stalls. These are without a doubt one of a major contributing factor to the current environmental crisis, and therefore, all takeaway containers provided at the festival will be reusable and recyclable. No excuses!
We are hoping you can help us in ensuring a reusable and green festival this year…
…Bring your own reusable bottles/cups! By bringing your own bottles and cups in reusable materials (such as metal, bamboo or reusable plastic) you will contribute massively in the fight against single-use plastic and for a happy mother earth. But don’t worry if you forget to bring one! We sell lovely metal Wonder Fields bottles on site.
…Avoid plastic packaging! If you are bringing food or drinks into the festivals, please be aware of the packing you are choosing. Tins and cartons are the best option wherever possible! Please also avoid bringing your edibles in plastic bags – leave some extra room in your backpack instead and save the planet.
…Dispose of your rubbish! Plenty of waste and recycling stations will be allocated around the site. Please, make sure you pick up your rubbish and place it in the correct bin! This makes a huge difference in helping us to reduce the overall environmental impact of our event.
…No glitter, no litter! If you are a glitter fan, please be conscious about your consumption of this sparkly waste (yes, it is indeed considered a waste.) There are plenty of other exciting ways to spice up your appearance for the festival – we recommend face paint, flowers or maybe a crazy wig! Bare in mind that even biodegradable glitter is not yet confirmed to be 100% environmental-friendly.
…Consider the impact of your travel! We’re working with Energy Revolution to tackle the environmental impact of festival travel – finding more sustainable ways for you to get to our site and helping you to balance unavoidable emissions with investment in renewable energy. You can purchase carbon offsetting donations at the same time as buying tickets through our website.
With that said – we are so excited to see all you fabulous people and we can’t wait to make the world a better place with you! Let’s start by dancing our way into a better future this summer.
With all our love,
The Wonder Fields Team
