Reading & Leeds will be using recycled plastic water bottles (rPET) this year and aims to be single use plastic free by 2021. It is also recommended that festival goers bring their own refillable bottle as there are numerous free water points around the festival. We have advised that festival goers say no to single use plastic and buy a good tent that can be taken home and reused, as an average tent is the equivalent to 8750 plastic straws or 250 plastic pint cups. Free festival merchandise, or 2020 festival tickets are up for grabs by using the Nifty Bin Recycling Points in the campsites and the Greenpeace Deposit Return Points give £1 for every 10 pint cups or rPET water bottles returned. As well as this it is encouraged that festival goers travel by coach or train to reduce their carbon footprint.
