Thousands of people going to the Glastonbury Festival next year will be banned from bringing plastic bottles.
The famous music festival in Somerset, which is taking a year off in 2018, is reported by The Guardian to be imposing the ban at its 2019 event.
Organiser Emily Eavis, appearing on BBC’s 6 Music, said the project was “enormous” and was "taking a lot of time to tackle with all the different people we work with”.
The move to reduce plastic bottles at Glastonbury comes as hundreds of thousands of people sign a new petition calling for UK supermarkets to end plastic packaging.
Greenpeace says UK supermarkets generate a million tonnes of plastic packaging every year.
