How to be Sustainable this Festival Season

Festival season is here! How can you be sustainable this festival season? We have made a list of sustainability tips to guide you through this festival season.

  • Sustainable Style: Festival fashion is all about creativity! Instead of buying new outfits, mix and match your clothing items to create fresh looks. The fashion industry is a major contributor to global textile waste, so opt for second-hand pieces from vintage shops. Avoid purchasing clothing that you'll only wear once to reduce waste and promote sustainability.
  • Choose Biodegradable Glitter: Traditional glitter is considered a microplastic, and contributes to plastic pollution. It disrupts ecosystems and is damaging to the environment. Opt for biodegradable glitter options instead! Biodegradable glitter is made from plant based materials, breaks down naturally in the environment and won’t damage the earth. Anam Cosmetics Biodegradable Glitter Eyeshadow uses 100% biodegradable glitter. It is also vegan and cruelty free.
  • Invest in Sustainable Pieces: For festival essentials like rain jackets or wellies that you'll use frequently, consider ethical and eco-friendly brands. By investing in pieces that are made from sustainable materials, you're not only reducing your environmental impact but also supporting the growth of the sustainable fashion industry.
  • Pack Reusable Essentials: Single-use plastics pose a significant threat to our planet's ecosystems, with millions of tons of plastic waste entering our oceans annually. Combat plastic pollution by packing reusable items such as water bottles, utensils, and food containers for your festival adventures.
  • Dispose of Waste Responsibly: Proper waste management is essential for maintaining the cleanliness and sustainability of festival grounds. Be sure to use designated recycling and composting bins at the festival. Do not litter!

By following these guidelines, you can enjoy festival season while making a positive impact on the planet.
