Lazy hypocrites: Glastonbury Festival attendees leave plastic bottles and trash across the grounds

Gee, where have a seen a bunch of liberals leave massive trash after one of their gatherings? Oh yeah, here.

From NY Post: So much for being eco-friendly.

Attendees at Britain’s five-day Glastonbury Festival — which ran on a theme of climate change and the environment — left behind thousands of plastic bottles and trash, photos of the aftermath show.

Environmentalists like Sir David Attenborough praised organizers of the music fest in Somerset for going “plastic free” by banning the sale of single-use plastic bottles this year. “That is more than a million bottles of water that have not been drunk by you. Thank you. Thank you,” Attenborough, 93, said to cheers and applause on Sunday, the last day of the festival.

Glastonbury co-organizer Emily Eavis, meanwhile, said the “most eye-opening part of the weekend for me was not seeing any plastic bottles in the bins or on the ground,” according to the BBC.

But post-festival photos told a different story — showing masses of plastic bottles and garbage strewn all over the 900-acre grounds.

Still, the on-site recycling team said it has seen “a massive reduction in the amount of plastic on the site this year — the least ever seen, by a distance,” the BBC reported.

When Glastonbury was last held in 2017, more than 1 million drinks in plastic bottles were sold. This year, there were zero, The Sun reported. There were more than 850 water refill stations at the festival, according to reports, which noted long lines to fill up.

Festival officials said there was never a ban on the public bringing their own plastic bottles and added that all plastic and cans left behind will be recycled, according to the BBC.

“We feel that the public very much bought into our campaign to reduce, reuse and recycle and we’re very pleased with the results,” a festival spokesperson told the news site.

The Left do this in every protest/festival. In contrast, conservative mass gatherings leave the grounds clean.

Yeah, I agree. I don’t get it. They ALWAYS leave a mess. I don’t even understand how a group or an individual can get up and simply walk away from a mess they made.

I suppose it helps explain LA.

Glastonbury is the site of Chalice Well where Joseph of Arimathea, the “secret disciple” who buried Jesus after the crucifixion, allegedly hid the chalice of the Last Supper. I’m reasonably certain that the people who attended this festival wern’t interested in that aspect of its history. Plastic refuse is an environmental problem, especially in the oceans, but not selling plastic containers at Glastonbury will have no effect on it whatsoever, despite the fantasies of these hypocritical slobs, any more than banning plastic grocery bags in my town will “save the planet”. The only way to save the planet is to… Read more »

Yeah, that’s one of the theories. There are several really interesting ones.

Just another “drill”. This is mass agreement 101. “Plastic bad”…”Orange Man bad”. “We are superior to those ‘deplorables (grrrr!)”. All the little snowflakes feel so warm and comforted knowing there isn’t a deserting thought for miles.

They are so lame they don’t even connect their piggish ways with “Mother Earth” who they claim to love. Even Druids cleaned up after themselves. My guess is that Sheryl Crow would use one sheet of TP and throw it on the ground.

Perhaps she throws herself on the ground, like dogs that scoot their butts to wipe themselves!

The majority of these young socialists see “Liberalism” as equivalent to “some body else does the work for me and cleans up after me.” Their sole goal in life is hedonistic pleasure without accountability, rules or limits.
