Headlining at Glastonbury

Organisers of the Glastonbury Festival opted for Polaris Plastics' eco-friendly, compostable refuse sacks for this year's event. Over 100,000 sacks were used throughout the festival, which took place at the end of June, at all waste locations across the 900 acre site.

The sacks were provided by the same Polaris distributor for the last two years, and conform to the international environmental standard EN 14342 giving the organisers the assurance that the sacks will fully compost along with the waste in the sack. The compostable sacks are tested to compost naturally and in industrial composting facilities as well as anaerobic digestion facilities.

Polaris Plastics has a proven track record of providing eco-friendly refuse sacks to major events as it provided compostable and other sacks for the London 2012 Olympics and the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow in 2014.

“We are delighted to have provided the refuse sacks for another high profile event,” said Paul Wilkes, business development director at Polaris Plastics. “These events are consistently choosing to compost their waste and our compostable sacks are ideal because of the performance and environmental certification. We are increasingly being seen as our distributors' preferred choice for major events.”
