This year’s Love Saves The Day in Bristol’s Ashton Court has banned glitter and single-use plastic.
The festival aims to reduce its environmental impact by 50% by 2025.
Running this week from June 2-3, the festival also has a ban on the selling of plastic water bottles on-site, with festival-goers encouraged to bring their own water bottles to refill.

The festival’s sustainability manager, Pauline Bourdon told the BBC that when people “connect together and have a moment of collective joy”, they are also able to “share thoughts and see different ways of behaving with food and waste, that can translate into society”.
Bourdon added: “We are also strongly advising our audience not to wear any glitter, even biodegradable glitter” because traces of microplastic have been found in that.
“It’s about reinforcing different behaviours we want to happen onsite and helping them to have a sense of empathy and identity with the ecosystems onsite.”

Glastonbury Festival will also 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 confirmed this 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 added that “we did so well in 2019, saving 1.7 million bottles from landfill!”
