Coachella and Live Nation are now banning plastic straws from all events

We all are aware of how bad plastic is for environment, and the ever increasing plastic crisis among our oceans, but it's only recently we're seeing big franchises making a stand against the use of plastic, finding healthier alternatives or just banning the use of plastic altogether.

The latest to jump aboard the "Save The Planet" train are festival heavy-weights, Coachella and Live Nation. The parent company of them, Goldenvoice, have teamed up with environmental campaign For A Strawless Ocean, who's goal is to decrease the amount of plastic we see in our oceans.

Plastic pollution is a huge problem around the world, and it’s exciting to pioneer change by phasing out the use of single-use plastics from our festivals

At future festivals, they'll be using marine-degradable paper straws as an alternative, and hope to slowly introduce more and more initiatives to reduce the use of plastic at their events.
