Drastic On Plastic Campaign
Last year we joined other members of the Association of Independent Festivals in promoting the elimination of ‘single use’ plastic at Cropredy. Backstage, all our plates, cups and crockery were made from compostable materials; so were all the ‘glasses’ from behind the Wadworth bar. Throughout the site we managed to reduce our single use bottle usage from approximately 4,500 in 2017 to fewer than 200 in 2018.
Our aim is to completely eliminate single use plastic from the arena by 2020. With your help we know we can do it!
For example, lots of you bought our lovely engraved stainless steel refillable Cropredy bottles and we plan to sell them at Cropredy again in August. Meanwhile, you can buy them from our online store here.
Even if you don’t buy one of our bottles, please bring along a refillable bottle of your own. This year, we’ll have even more ‘water filling stations’ around the Cropredy concert arena where you can fill your bottles with cooled spring water for just 50p per 500ml bottle. If you prefer free tap water, the piped water supply will be passed safe to use by the local authorities.
Help us to really make a difference in stamping out single use plastic.
