Friday 20th Aug 2021 |

With Creamfields, Reading and Leeds Festival all taking place next week, many attendees will be on the hunt for the funkiest headwear or the flashiest pair of sunglasses to take away with them.

But, with many events taking place this summer facing pressures to implement recycling incentives thanks to unnecessary waste, how can festival-goers ensure they choose the right accessories that won’t harm the planet? 

From boho-chic to a night at the rave, Uswitch’s eco-beauty campaign has rounded up five of the must-have environmentally-friendly accessories below:

We all know a British Summertime festival doesn’t always come with the guarantee of glorious sunshine and blue skies, but for those lucky days, a pair of good sunglasses is essential.

These sunglasses from Nomad eyewear are made from 100% recycled materials, and for every pair you purchase, the company will also plant two trees. Price: £40 upwards Buy here.
