So tell us more about Bye Bye Plastic?
This is our second year and we’ve been so pleased with the response. we now have more than 2,000 DJs, agencies and club partners on board, as well as receiving media support from BBC, the GRAMMY’s, Clash Magazine and more.
Our first call-to-action is what we call the Eco-Rider – asking DJs to request that no single-use plastic – including plastic bottles, cups or straws – are provided in the DJs booths they play in. Artists who have signed up include Pete Tong, Patrick Topping, Annie Mac and more, giving the campaign’s #PlasticFreeParty movement huge reach.
This is just our first initiative, next, we’ll be looking at carbon offsetting. Our team are working to provide solutions for clubs, bars and venues and they have found the best alternatives to single-use plastic that they can use. One of our primary goals is to assist clubs and festivals in making the transition to go fully single-use plastic-free by offering these researched and cost-effective solutions for them.
I think now more than ever there is a need for people to be able to enjoy the escapism that dancefloors can offer, but we want to be able to do this in a way which doesn’t harm our beautiful environment.
