Music Festival Waste Problem Solved by Glad Company
Glad, makers of trash bags, may have solved a common problem at music festivals. Their one-person trash bag tent, intended for camping, outdoor events, and music festivals, was launched at SXSW 2013 in Austin, Texas.
The tents were distributed to the music festival attendees with the stipulation that they would use them to clean up the areas where they slept when they were finished with the tents. These innovative tent/garbage bags serve a dual purpose that may eliminate much of the mess of music festival gatherings.
They received a positive response from testers at SXSW 2013. Made from durable and somewhat stretchy material, they are tough, waterproof, and easy to use.
