Take real action to stop the sea of waste left behind at Electric Picnic. If you care at all about the Earth we live on, don't support a festival that doesn't proactively try to reduce its impact.
Why is this important?
Last year, Electric Picnic revellers left behind 550 tonnes of rubbish (10kg per person), including tents, sleeping bags, headphones, and clothes in Stradbally, Co Laois. Each year, this mess is headline news at the end of the festival, yet the organisers (Festival Republic) do nothing to address the problem and continue to add more tickets year on year, making the problem worse over time. It's time to take a stand against these irresponsible practices and demand that Festival Republic do more to reverse the culture that encourages festival goers to trash our beautiful countryside at their events.
Let's ask Festival Republic to have some rules about waste at Electric Picnic this year.
