This year’s Glastonbury will see a ban on the sales of single-use plastic bottles as part of its policy that was introduced at the 2019 festival.
Emily Eavis has confirmed that the policy will be running at this year’s Glastonbury via a post on Instagram that states: “With 28 days to go till gates open, I wanted to remind everyone that, as in 2019, single-use plastic drinks bottles will not be sold on-site at Glastonbury 2022.”
She adds that “we did so well in 2019, saving 1.7 million bottles from landfill!”
