We Are Harming The Environment By Attending Music Festivals
It’s not unusual to be scrolling through Facebook and come across articles titled “Why You Should Go To A Music Festival” or “Ten Items You Should Pack When Going To Music Festivals”.
What we should also take into consideration is the damaging affects of not cleaning up after ourselves when attending one.
The day has come in which you pack your bags full of water bottles, snacks, baby wipes, portable chargers, clothing and most importantly your ticket. You’re anticipating your arrival to the venue and meeting up with your friends from various places that you haven’t recently seen.
It is unlikely that you are thinking about bringing a couple trash bags to clean up after yourself, but such a small act can go a long way.
It’s a common occurrence for trashcans at festivals to begin overflowing within the first day, causing bacteria to surface, creating a harmful environment for us as well as animals and insects. It is also an easy way to start a fire if a cigarette butt lands close enough to dried paper.
