The Great Glastonbury Cleanup

If you care about the environment, and I know I do, then you’ll be pleased to note that they have been able to clean up the site of this year’s Glastonbury Festival in what seems like record time:

[This has been] one of Glastonbry's greenest festivals in years. 

The clean up after Glastonbury Festival 2019 is 90% complete according to organiser Emily Eavis who has described it as a “massive improvement” on the last.

According to The Guardian, this year’s clean-up is expected to be complete in 4 weeks thanks to the continued good weather. In 2017, it looks teams over 6 weeks to complete the clean-up operation.

On Tuesday, Eavis published a post on Instagram saying that this year, “93.3% of all tents were taken home” after analysing the results of an Ariel site photograph before and after the event.

I’ve yet to figure out how you can abandon a tent, but it makes sense. You spend four or five days throwing up in one, why take it with you?
