As we step ever closer to summer, many people’s thoughts turn to the great outdoors. And what better way to enjoy the warmer climes than listening to live music in a field of likeminded revellers, enjoying some tasty food and indulging in a few drinks? Sounds perfect, right?

With 3.17million UK music festival goers annually, the waste created by festivals each year in the UK equals around 23,500 tonnes (powerful-thinking.org.uk), not to mention the detrimental effect on the land, wildlife and environment.
