Many of us flock to festivals in summer, and often forget to pack the basics. Here we’re giving you a quick rundown of festival essentials, the ethical way!
While you’re jumping around dancing all day in vast crowds of people you’re going to work up a sweat – make sure you have a deodorant handy so you can stay feeling and smelling fresh. This handy stick will stop the sweat all day, leaving you to have fun odour free.
If you’re heading to a festival in the UK you’re probably going to be faced with rain and mud, so you want to try protecting yourself from the harsh weather so you can still enjoy the music. These Patagonia jackets are great; they have hoods, are water proof and have two zippered hand warmer pockets.

You don’t want to get dehydrated so ensure you have your water bottle to hand. Don’t bother buying loads of plastic bottles of water, you’re wasting money and creating more plastic waste. Use this reusable option instead, just remember to keep filling it up.
