1500 DJs call for the elimination of single-use plastics in clubs and festivals

Initiative, spearheaded and organized by BLOND: ISH, calls for eliminating single-use plastics from club canteens.

More than 1500 DJs have joined this initiative, including Richie Hawtin, Pete Tong, Honey Dijon, Annie Mac, Sven Väth, Ben Klock or Eats Everything.

The initiative aims to achieve greater breadth and impact. By 2025 it seeks to completely eliminate single-use plastics from the music industry. Plastic cups are the worst evil, they are part of the landscape of many clubs and festivals, constituting a real environmental problem.

“We are at an absolutely crucial moment in evolution, where change is in the air and silence brings no change. Change is driven by movement. Movements thrive on community, creativity, participation, and ideals. The secret ingredient that we have to add to this mix is ​​music. It is the strongest glue and the strongest human connector. We can't forget that, so let's use it endlessly, forever, ”said BLOND: ISH.

On the same topic, climate change, Massive Attack announced that their next tour will be "green" and that they are jointly organizing it with the Tyndall Center for Climate Change Research at the University of Manchester. Coldplay have also chosen not to tour their latest album due to environmental concerns.
