Earlier this month, the organizers of Glastonbury Festival, one of the biggest events of the summer, worked with Greenpeace to ban the sale of single-use plastic bottles and encouraged visitors to bring their own reusable alternatives. Sir David Attenborough himself made an appearance on the pyramid stage to thank the festival goers for going plastic free. It is estimated that the festival will have eliminated the use of one million plastic drinking water bottles as a result of their new plastic rules
At SEL Group Ltd we have a PLuSH assessment tool which helps organisations to assess the plastic impact of their activities associated with events, sales and hospitality. Our tool assesses issues from Advertising to Vending Machines and includes a review of the packaging on goods in, cleaning, gifting, event promotional materials, sales, catering and services such as laundry and security.
From Admission Badges to Zero waste shopping – we assess it all!
This is the rating for our training events, and as you can see following our review we identified some opportunities to reduce our plastic footprint further.
PLuSH Audit Result: SEL Group Ltd June 2019.
If they had completed the PLuSH review we would have suggested that they reconsidered/justified the balloon arch and applied a few plastic rules for their event. Events should be fun, and a PLuSH event will still be fun but with a lower plastic footprint it could also be greener too.
