Festivals are every outrageous thing brought to life under one space, gleaming with sparkles, smiles and laughter. An excuse for the whole world to come together, put their differences aside and dance away until the early hours of the moonlight. An electrifying experience, an experience that ignites the soul and plays with our deepest desires, festival season is and always will be our favourite season.  

This summer the Pandas have put together a simple guide to help you go completely plastic free this festival season. 

  1. Take your own reusable water bottle.

Plastic water bottles are so 2018. Not only do you only use them once, they account for 1/3  of all of the plastic entering our oceans. YUCK. We have 2 solutions to this problem, our PANDA stainless steel water bottle and our PANDA Bamboo flask that can be used as a water bottle. Another fantastic option is Chilly’s

2. Refuse single use straws.

Now this is one of Pandas easiest little secrets, just say no. No straw please. Plastic straws are used just once then thrown away to remain on our beautiful planet forever. They are the 11th most found trash in the ocean. You can stop this by choosing to use a reusable straw, it’s simple!  Choose from our favourite, PANDA bamboo straws.

3. Avoid single use Cutlery & Tupperware.

Single use cutlery and Tupperware is not your friend, or the oceans. Swap these items for our reusable alternatives made from bamboo instead. PANDA lunchbox and PANDA cutlery

4. Leave the single use face wipes on the supermarket shelves and swap them for reusable bamboo face wipes. 

 The Marine Conservation Society announced that wet wipes have become the fastest growing cause of pollution on our beaches. Reusable face wipes made from bamboo are a total life saver. They reduce your waste output and help you save money in the long run. Did you know 1 reusable bamboo facewipe is the equilavent to using 300 single use wipes – oh my panda! 

5. Don’t forget your bamboo toothbrush and toothpaste tablets! 

Our teeth deserve the best, and so does our planet. So switch up your plastic toothbrush and tubes of toothpaste for these super sustainable alternatives instead, PANDA toothbrush, Georganics toothpaste tablets. They’re teeeethlicious! 

So that’s it my sustainbale little pandas, those are our top tips to help you go plastic free this festival season.
