Ban on Single-Use Plastic Water Bottles

Water refill stations at RWMF were among STB’s many efforts to make the festival more sustainable as festival-goers were encouraged to bring their own reusable water bottles. This initiative has helped reduce the consumption of single-use plastic water bottles.

It was considered the biggest impact at RWMF2019. It was commendable for STB to take such a bold step to reduce their plastic footprint. Water stations situated throughout the festival grounds provided clean drinking water for free throughout the 3-day festival. Festival-goers could also purchase collapsible cups at the festival.

STB’s message was simple: to encourage festival-goers to bring their own recyclable water bottles and get water from the water stations to reduce the usage of plastic water bottles and at the same time, reduce waste which is harmful to the environment.
