The Concert Industry Is Slowly Moving Away From Plastic Bottles

Plastic and music industry seems unrelated but the enormous amount of plastic wastes in concerts are inevitable, especially due to the popularity of the simple single-use containers for beer, water and soda. But according to Dianna Cohen, an environmental activist/artist there’s hope. She is also a co-founder of the Plastic Pollution Coalition, a global alliance of individuals, organizations and businesses working together to stop plastic pollution.

Cohen’s project Plastic Free Touring sprouted out from her broader Plastic Free Living initiative. The project encourage touring performers to reduce their plastic footprint on the road and how to do so. The Coalition has worked with artists such as Jackson Browne, Ben Harper and Crosby, Stills and Nash as well as Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival to provide fans and artists with reusable, stainless-steel containers to use instead of disposable cups. She hopes to spread this project in all the major music festivals to promote reusable containers and to advocate to break the addiction of bottle water in recent years.

Could Berkeley’s soda tax be a model for tackling obesity across America?

We all know what happened in the election few days ago. Berkeley city in California definitely made history in this election to be the first city in the nation to impose a tax on sugary drinks.

 

Berkely Vs. Big Soda advocacy group worked hard and lobbied for this victory as a part of their Healthy Child Initiative campaign. There will be a $0.01 per ounce tax on all beverages sweetened with sugar ( except alcohol, dairy products and drinks for medical purposes). The revenue of this tax will support the city’s health and health education programs.

This indeed shows how America is ready to fight for a healthier society and let’s hope there will be many cities and states that will follow Berkeley’s lead to a healthier America.
