Your guide to plastic-free festivals and events

A pioneering effort in Ireland to revolutionise the way arts and cultural events are conducted.

By providing comprehensive strategies to eliminate plastic usage, the guide aims to significantly reduce environmental impact and promote sustainability within the arts and cultural events sectors.

Embracing a plastic-free culture not only addresses immediate environmental concerns but also fosters a broader understanding of the circular economy, wherein resources are reused and recycled, leading to long-term ecological benefits.

Created in collaboration with The Department of the Environment, Climate and Communications, the Regional Waste Management Planning Offices and Native Events, this initiative not only sets a standard for responsible event management but also encourages creative industries to lead by example, inspiring positive change and setting the stage for a more sustainable future in Ireland’s arts and cultural landscape.
