Canadian DJ Blond:sh wants to kill plastic pollution in the music scene

Plastic pollution is an ever-growing problem for the entire world. It seems like every day there are new revelations about the consequences of our plastic consumption. Fortunately, for every bit of bad news about plastics, there’s also some good.

Individuals and organizations around the world are making strong efforts to alleviate the problem. And one such effort is happening from within the dance music scene!

Vive-ann Bakos — who is now the sole member of Canadian DJ/producer act Blond:ish — founded Bye Bye Plastic, which seeks to eliminate the use of plastics in the music scene by 2025. Promoted by ‘#PlasticFreeParty’ on social media, the movement now has 1,500 house and techno DJ’s who have pledged to honor her mission. Some of the more popular DJs include Richie Hawtin, ANNA, Pete Tong, Honey Dijon, Eats Everything, and Annie Mac. View the promo video for the #PlasticFreeParty movement in the tweet below!

 

Protecting our own backyard

In the Pacific Northwest, we have some of the most unique natural landscapes in the world. As a result, this makes us a prime spot for outdoor festival venues. As festival season inches closer, we should all think about ways we can apply the “eco-rider” mentality. An example is the effort by the Paradiso festival’s Conscious Crew to help reduce plastic waste at the Gorge Ampitheater.

Let’s set an example for other industries by being an eco-friendly scene. Whenever possible, find out ways you can help keep clubs and festival grounds (especially the Gorge Ampitheater) free of plastic pollution.
