Ahead of its tenth anniversary edition, Parklife Festival will be enforcing its Green Pledge scheme again this year.

The scheme will see Parklife ban all plastic straws from bars at the event, with attendees encouraged to make use of the cup return initiative. With no polystyrene cups or trays to be used at Parklife 2019, the festival will also clamp down on the use of sachets by banning them entirely by the event.

Using only hybrid generators, Parklife – which endeavours to make 60 per cent of its cups entirely non-plastic – will also encourage festivalgoers to share cars or use public transport on their way to and from the event, in a bid to cut down on fuel emissions in the local area.
