Voices of the Refill Revolution

At the average music festival, each person creates about 15 pounds of garbage every day. The biggest component of that waste? Single-use plastic: water bottles, beer cups, straws, utensils, wrappers, and packaging.

For the past three years, Plastic Pollution Coalition has partnered with Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival to reduce the amount of single-use plastic used. And it’s working. An estimated 1.5 million single-use bottles and cups were diverted from the landfill over the past three years at Bonnaroo.

The Refill Revolution is bigger than one festival. It’s a movement to reduce our plastic footprint on this planet. Check out the voices of the Refill Revolution and learn what you can do in the slideshow below.

    When i see people carrying case after case of of use single plastic bottles out of the store it makes me feel ill. Its obvious these plastic bottles are a major cause of plastic polluting the ocean. More than plastic straws. No one seems to care. Nothing would convince them to go back to glass bottles returned for 5 cents. Too much trouble. How much plastic was in the ocean then? Im surprised there are no demonstrations outside grocery stores. These one serve plastic water bottles will continue to grow the island of plastic in the pacific ocean. I guess having a light plastic water bottle ito carry around is more important to people all over the globe than ocean pollution and dead marine life. I can see why. So simple, dont think about it
