RAW at Shambala 2016
RAW Foundation has teamed up with Shambala Festival and Frank Water to produce a reusable, 100% stainless steel water bottle.
RAW Foundation making waves at Shambala
A dynamic art exhibition and jam-packed timetable of activities and workshops for kids and adults will provide an opportunity to connect festival-goers to this critical global issue.
We hope to raise awareness, inspire action and creative rebellion to reduce plastic consumption. So, if you are a festival-goer interested in a plastic free future (or indeed keen to reduce festival waste) join us and get involved!
RAW Foundation and Shambala
Shambala are leading the way to reduce the amount of single-use plastic on site and encourage Festival-goers to bring their own reusable water bottles or buy a stainless steel bottle instead of buying plastic bottled water.
They cause an enormous amount of needless waste, especially as the festival provides free tap water across the site. You can fill your bottle for free at any of their drinking water taps.
Every piece of plastic ever made still exists somewhere and the effects these types of plastics have on the environment are huge with an estimated 150 million tonnes of plastic currently littering our earth and oceans.
We hope you’ll join us, to help make Shambala as plastic-free as possible and save yourself a few quid on bottled water in the process!
RAW Foundation and Frank Water
Frank Water will be reminding festival-goers how lucky we are to have taps and safe water sources in the UK so rather than buying plastic bottles that will ruin the site, buy a reusable bottle and drink fresh tap water all festival!

Our RAW Truth Message
Raw Foundation will be raising awareness about the hidden consequences of plastic pollution and its impacts – we are change driven and solutions focused.
Our Plastic-Free Festival-Goers Guide will cover everything from the stark reality about plastics to festival-specific advice and tips. The guide aims to give individuals a single source reference to the things they also need to take into consideration to reduce their plastic footprint in a wider context, but without being prescriptive.
SIGN THE PETITION
Come and find us at the festival and sign our petition, to amplify the message for whole sector change and call on world leaders to put an end to single use toxic plastics.
We’ll use every signature we collect at Shambala to make sure world leaders Make Waves about hazardous (or toxic) plastics at the UN General Assembly, and prove that a world free from single use plastic for everyone, everywhere by 2030 isn’t just a pipe dream!
