Broadwick Live joins AIF’s Drastic on Plastic campaign

UK: Broadwick Live has joined the Association of Independent Festival’s Drastic on Plastic campaign. The promoter joins more than 60 independent festivals in a pledge to ban the use of plastic straws onsite this season as a minimum first step, and to eliminate all single-use plastic at their events by 2021.

Furthermore, as part of Broadwick Live’s commitment to green policies, all festivals and venues within its portfolio will be introducing a number of initiatives from this summer, including but not limited to:

  • Encouragement for customers to bring/buy refillable water bottles
  • Festivals will put on extra stand-pipes with access to free drinking water
  • No single serve sachets for condiments
  • No plastic straws
  • No polystyrene
  • Eco cups where possible
  • Incentives for customers to keep campsites clean
  • Tent recycling
  • Use of tent rental companies in most
  • No plastic bottles back of house for staff
  • Biodegradable glitter at glitter stations
