Food Packaging

When you buy food from the traders at Longitude Festival, everything your food comes in is biodegradable. You will notice many traders have plates, bowls and trays.

Using plastic or polystyrene packaging is not sustainable – they’re not only oil based but polystyrene can’t be efficiently recycled, and plastic containers that aren’t washed out can’t be recycled either. So we’re going with sustainable packaging that’s also compostable. Please make sure NO PLASTIC goes into the compost bins as otherwise the whole load may be rejected.
