Dear Tony Gleeson,

Imagine a music scene where artists, punters and crew stay healthily hydrated while keeping their sites - and the planet - clean!

That's the vision of our new campaign, #BYOBottle. We're working with artists and festivals to phase out unnecessary and destructive single use, disposable water bottles, and we wanted to give you a sneak peak and a chance to get involved before the public launch this week.

Join our #BYOBottle campaign here

#BYOBottle is taking on plastic bottles from two angles. We're working hand in hand with festivals to help them go plastic free, bringing in refilling stations for punters, artists and crew, rewriting contracts with stall-holders to make sure they don't sell any disposables, and letting everyone know well in advance, asking them to bring their own reusable bottle.

With Caloundra Festival as our model and inspiration, we've helped Illawarra Folk Festival to go plastic free already, and we're now working with the National Folk Festival on a staged approach.

At the same time, we're recruiting artists to adopt a green drinks rider, telling venues and festivals they play at that they don't want plastic bottles, but want jugs or refilling stations instead. So far, Paul Kelly, Katie Noonan, Ash Grunwald, Holly Throsby and David Bridie are on board.
Commit to our green rider and become a #BYOBottle Ambassador

It's easy to join this campaign - all you need to do is adopt the green drinks rider on our website! If you send us a photo and a quote, like Paul Kelly has, we'll add you to the site as an ambassador.

We reckon that, with this pincer movement, we can get plastic bottles out of our industry in a few years, making a big step towards a green music scene.

But it won't happen if you don't join us.

Looking forward to getting lots of you involved with this exciting campaign!

PS: We're crowdfunding this campaign so we can bring on staff to help with outreach and organisation, produce materials, and make it as big a success as possible. You'll hear more from us about this in the weeks ahead, but we'd be hugely grateful if you could make a tax-deductible donation and help us raise the funds we need. Thanks!
