Are you joining WaterAid at Glastonbury Festival this year? Anna Hedges, our very own Glastonbury volunteer manager has another reason for you to look forward to it.  

They’re light, they’re durable and they’re back! Get your hands on one of our reusable water bottles and help put an end to plastic waste at this year’s festival.

The bottles aren’t just a unique memento of the festival. They’re a sustainable alternative to buying bottled water, helping to drastically reduce the amount of plastic waste onsite – and they’re handy to use all year round too.

Don't miss out

Each water bottle costs £10. Thousands have already been sold to Glastonbury ticketholders, and a very limited number will be available to buy during the festival itself – so be quick before they go!

Once you’re on Worthy Farm, you can collect (or buy) your bottle – and get as many refills of fresh, clean water as you like – from any of the ten WaterAid water kiosks on the site.

Our kiosks can be found in the following areas:

  • WaterAid's stand at the Pyramid Stage
  • Pyramid Stage Cider Bus
  • Meeting Place
  • Stone Circle
  • Park Stage Ribbon Tower
  • Other Stage
  • Mandela Bar
  • Kidz Field and Family Camping
  • Worthy View
  • Interstage

And to top it off, all profits from sales of the bottles will be split between WaterAid and the Raw Foundation, an organisation working to educate, engage and empower young people to move towards sustainable consumption and production.

The real water kiosks

Our water kiosks at Glastonbury are inspired by those run by amazing women like Sitraka in Merinarivo village, Madagascar.

“I love my community and I know they need someone like me to manage the kiosk,” says Sitraka.

“I’m providing clean water and they’re having a better, healthier life. I’m really proud of myself.”
