Glastonbury Green Police

I had never heard of the Glastonbury Festival before. I have found out that it is the largest music and performing arts festival in the world. They take their fun very seriously. They are also serious about taking care of the earth. They have even implemented the Green Police force to carry out this task. Here are a few of my favorite ways they do this:

1. using the Green Police as a fun way to discourage littering during the festival

2. encourage festival goers to buy tents that will be reused time and again

3. bring only things you will take home with you

4. using cotton bags

5. attendees will be reprimanded for urinating outside the properly provided toilet areas

6. making sure cigarette butts are properly disposed of

7. litter picking is strongly encouraged

8. more recycling bins will be available

9. teaching others about better waste management

10. using fun and humor to help educate festival goers
