Glastonbury is ‘flushed’ with success

Free toilet roll initiative goes down well at muddy festival

Glastonbury is ‘flushed’ with success as it moves into its second day (June 23).

Organisers have been handing out free toilet rolls to festival goers as they arrive so that everyone’s needs are catered for, and ensuring that the site is using mainly recycled paper.

The gesture certainly seems to have gone down well with fans with over 160,000 rolls having been given out across the site, that would be roughly 4000km if they were all laid out in a line.

Meanwhile the festival was also reporting that it’s Icount climate change campaign is proving a success, with 20,000 people signing the petition so far.
