  • Bye Bye Plastic has signed up 1500 DJs to its #PlasticFreeParty movement. The pledge means that each artist will adopt an "eco-rider" to ban single-use plastic in the DJ booth, as part of a drive to reduce the use of plastic in nightlife more generally. Among those that have signed are Richie Hawtin, Ben Klock, Cassy, Honey Dijon, Annie Mac and Pete Tong. "Change is fuelled by movements," Bye Bye Plastic founder Vivie-Ann Bakos (better known as Blond:ish) says. "Movements thrive on community, creativity, participation and idealism. The secret ingredient, AKA superpower, we have to add to this mix is music. It's the absolute strongest glue and the strongest human connector. We can't forget that, so let's use it endlessly for good." Watch a video about #PlasticFreeParty.
