In an effort to cut down on plastic pollution, concert promoters Live Nation announced this week that its music festivals will be plastic-free by 2021.
The company announced a list of environmental goals, which includes getting rid of single-use plastic items by 2021, cutting down on fossil fuels, and reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 50 percent by 2030.
Live Nation hosts more than 35,000 concerts globally each year.
In a statement, company president Michael Rapino said they have a “responsibility to provide our artists and fans with a live music experience that protects our planet.”
Why has the push against single-use plastics caught on so much in the last year? Have you taken any steps to cut down on plastic waste?
