How to reduce your impact this music festival season

While you’re preparing for fun in the sun and catching some of your favourite artists, here are a few other things to keep in mind prior to your next festival experience:

  • Take a bus or carpool to the festival in order to reduce GHG emissions!
  • Make sure to recycle, and consider volunteering to help clean up the festival site while you’re at it. The goal is to leave the land the way you found it!
  • Go thrifting to find your perfect festival wardrobe! You’ll cut down on clothing pollution and will likely find some one-of-a-kind pieces. Just skip the glitter, unless you can find plastic-free varieties.

  • Take your tent home – you’d be surprised by how many people fail to do so. You can always get a recyclable one if you really don’t want to pack up your tent.
