The RAW Foundation, an organisation committed to educating people to move towards sustainable consumption, has launched the Making Waves Guide to Plastic Free Festivals and Events. 

As part of a major campaign to encourage event and festival organisers to reduce plastics at their events, the guide has been published by the RAW Foundation in collaboration with Kambe Events, a sustainable event management consultancy.

Co-writer of the guide, Chris Johnson, co-founder of Shambala, provides practical advice on what steps can be taken by event organisers to take action on the use of plastics at their events. The case studies in the guide are drawn primarily from UK festivals, however they illustrate examples of good practice relevant to the wider event and international festival community.
