Plastic water bottles are terrible for the planet – we know this. Even if you purchase them and recycle them, they are still terrible for the planet: it uses resources to make them, and resources to recycle them (so don’t buy them).
The Big Sounds festival in Brisbane is going plastic water bottle free! They are giving out reusable water bottles in their goodie bags, and will have refillable water stations throughout the grounds.
This is such a simple step on their part, and hopefully this will encourage their festival goers to make better choices about being prepared, and brining their reusables with them to other festivals!
