Glastonbury Could Ban Plastic Bottles in 2019

By Gary Cutlack on at

The organiser of the Glastonbury festival, which is having a year off this year for the sake of the grass, says that one of the pet projects being worked on right now is a possible ban on all plastic bottles in time for the event's return in 2019.

That's according to Emily Eavis, daughter of the festival's founder and the main stuff-doer nowadays, who told the BBC: "We're working on banning plastic bottles... which is an enormous project and it's taking a lot of time to tackle it with all the different people we work with. But that's the big project at the moment for 18, to get rid of plastic bottles across the whole site."

It's going to make it much harder to throw piss at the year's ironic pop booking, or anyone who looks even a bit like James Blunt. [Guardian]
