We’ve seen your concerns (and the planets!) about plastic packaging and we are banning plastic straws and non-compostable plastic cups at Together 2018.
We’re very aware of Together’s beautiful surroundings and we’re constantly looking for ways to reduce impact on the environment - eco toilets, eco spa, reusing your cups, compostable packaging and using local suppliers and services where possible.
This year we are going a step further to reduce plastic on site, we’re banning plastic straws and non-compostable plastic cups.
- There will be a 10p (compostable) plastic cup tax if you don’t have your own cup.
- We’ll waive the 10p if you bring back your previous cup to reuse
- We’ll pay 5p per cup for any returned for composting
We hope you are all behind this decision.
You can bring your own cup or order one of our beautiful steel Together cups that you can use again and again on site and for years afterwards.
Lots of you have told us cold drinks taste better in them, they keep your pint colder for longer, are made from 90% recycled steel, support skills, jobs and industry in Sheffield.
Plus they’re a little cheaper to order in advance so if you haven’t already.
You can order yours from our ticket page to collect when you arrive here.
We’ll be supplying eco washing up liquid at the sink in the camping field.
