What started out as a social experiment at Rocking the Daisies last year has now become an inherent part of our activities: having fun while keeping festivals clean! After Synergy and Resonance NYE, we set up our TrashBack station at the Up The Creek Festival from 31.Jan – 3.Feb near Swellendam.

Our target was to collect 500 plastic bottles, 500 cans and 10 000 cigarette butts. The results are here:
