From abandoned tents to food waste, music festivals can be very bad for the planet but here are some ways you can enjoy the festival fun guilt-free.

Music festivals produce 23,500 tonnes of waste every year including discarded clothes and plastic bottles. 

The online marketplace OnBuy has put together a list of nine eco-friendly essentials that all festival-goers need to pack. 

From glitter to tent pegs, these reusable and sustainable items are good for you, and good for the planet too.
