Hull music festival leads the way in war on plastic pollution

Hull Music Festival Fights Plastic Pollution | IBRAN

Author Ted Bromley-Hall

Music festivals are notorious for the carnage they leave in their wake but Hull's Humber Street Sesh is making big changes in its bid to go green.

The Humber Street Sesh is a Mecca for emerging talent, attracting 30,000 spectators and over 200 new acts across 14 stages.

Last year's event saw over 38,000 single use plastic water bottles discarded around Hull's waterfront and marina.

In a bid to curb a growing trend of plastic waste converging upon North and East Yorkshire's beaches, Humber Street Sesh organisers have made the bold decision to cut all single use plastics.

With soaring temperatures expected and fresh water being more necessary than ever, guests are being given multi-use water bottles to re-fill from free water stations all across the site.

Humber Street Sesh goes green in its bid to reduce plastic waste pollution in East Yorkshire.

All food stands are being asked to use recyclable and compostable packaging and cups for their food and drink, helping to cut down the waste even further.

In another bold move to reduce the event's footprint, the Youth Stage will be fully powered by solar panels.
