BYO Bottle

Together, We Are Creating A Sustainable Festival

“We applaud the Caloundra Music Festival for their continued efforts to build a bigger, better and more environmentally sustainable festival, year after year. We believe that every action can make a difference and the cumulative impact of saving 20,000 plastic bottles from making their way into landfill and waterways is a huge achievement. What an amazing example of the power of our choices.” Jodi Salmond, Reef Check Australia


“Water sold in plastic bottles is a source of litter and greenhouse pollution.  In most cases it is completely unnecessary – and a scam. Bottled water costs about 1000 times as much as the safe, clean, tasty water available out of a tap in most places in Australia.  Caloundra Music Festival is leading the way by not selling disposable water at the festival and encouraging festival goers to bring their
own re-usable water bottles
.”  ACF President, Professor Ian Lowe


“This is really the initiative we need to spread awareness of plastic pollution and create behavioural change that will have lasting benefits for our environment and particularly our oceans. Marine debris is such a massive problem for our oceans.”  Jacki Boyce, Australian Marine Conservation Society
