Even if you spend every day navigating traffic jams in a city, festivals are the one time we can all feel at one with nature. Spending long days in the countryside enjoying live music, then sleeping under the stars allows us to get back to basics, take a deep breath of fresh air and resolve to look after this planet for the generations to come.

So we definitely commend Phil’s intentions. No one wants to be the person at a festival leaving empty food containers on the ground when there’s a recycling bin metres away. Or leaving a trail of beer cups everywhere you go like Goldilocks’ evil twin. But equally, it’s never a good idea to carry a weekend’s worth of recycling around with you in a specially adapted jacket – especially if it includes a half eaten tuna sandwich and an old banana skin. Imagine standing next to that watching Sunday night’s headliners after a weekend of scorching temperatures...

There has to be an easier way. Just return your cups to the recycling points around the arena and get a 10p refund for each one. It is, genuinely, money for nothing. You might even make enough for another Carlsberg. Plus you’ll leave no trace behind you when the festival ends and your friends won’t mind sharing a car home with you. Unlike Phil, who you will probably still be able to smell an hour after he’s left the site...
