YOU GOT THE POWER

Industry Professionals

Let's create the plastic-free experiences together

WE ADRESS INDUSTRY PROFESSIONALS TO

Facilitate Solutions

Event organisers are more powerful than they think. Besides throwing sick parties, they have the opportunity to create new realities through the collective spaces they're designing and animating...

And those realities can shape a better future. Bye Bye Plastic works to guide these music industry professionals to lead by example while shaping stages to become spaces for social connection.

We consult, guide and navigate the plastic-free paradigm.

HOW DO YOU KNOW HOW MUCH KILOS TO LOSE IF YOU DON'T KNOW HOW MUCH YOU WEIGH ?

The Issue We Are Tackling

With this, we’re making a statement: the music industry had no available baseline data for clubs, festivals, agencies and individuals to understand where we are at with respect to plastics consumption… until now. Bye Bye Plastic is currently working hard at creating some baseline plastic consumption measurements for the music industry, so we can start a dialogue, set collective goals and track our progress together.

 

We did some preliminary research, and this is what we found:

In one year (open for 110 days),

the average 2 000 capacity club generates around

4,8

TONNES OF WASTE

17,77

TONNES OF CO2

AND

and that's only on plastic cups, straws, and water bottles

THIS IS THE SAME AS DRIVING TWICE AROUND THE EARTH IN A CAR 

In the course of one day,

an average 50 000 person festival generates around

7,6

TONNES OF CO2

2,05

TONNES OF WASTE

AND

also only on plastic cups, straws, and water bottles.

THIS IS EQUIVALENT TO THE PRODUCTION OF OVER 12 000 BEEF BURGERS.

Of course, every business is different and the Plastic Footprint Calculator, a tool we have in our hearts to launch later this year, will provide festivals, clubs and individuals with accurate data, as well as enable them to monitor their plastic footprint. This way, everyone can better track their own, and the collective progresses. 

Plastic Consultancy

We know how arduous it can be to start a plastic-free track with so little free time available, and so much misinformation floating around. And let's be honest, to each their own: events are good for parties, labels are good at growing musicians, and tour managers are good at planning artists wild adventures. That's why you can leave the plastic-free part(y) to the pros (that's us).

 

The Eco-Rider might be what started the buzz, but there's a lot more that we do. Discover the full range of services we offer within our Consultancy Services.
