Amazing news for all the Coachella and Glasto lovers (depending on which side of the pond you are on)! Dianna Cohen, co-founder of the Plastic Pollution Coalition started a very ambitious project that aims to reduce the massive carbon footprint that concerts leave behind. One huge contributor to the issue is the widespread use of single-use containers for beer, water and other drinks, and Diana Cohen is determined to do something to change that. She calls the project Plastic Free Touring, which is part of her broader Plastic Free Living initiative. In just a couple of years, the Plastic Pollution Coalition has worked with Jackson Browne, Ben Harper and Crosby, Stills and Nash as well as Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival to provide fans and artists with reusable, stainless-steel containers to use instead of disposable cups!
