Glastonbury Festival Campers to Use Potato Tent Pegs
Music lovers camping at this year’s Glastonbury Festival will leave the area cleaner and safer than in years past. BBC News is reporting that organizers are introducing new potato tent pegs that made of starch.
The metal pegs that used in previous years were causing injuries to cows that roam the concert site’s fields, leading to organizers making the switch to completely biodegradable and sturdy potato pegs in their place.
The potato pegs are part of a series of planned measures to make the Glastonbury Festival more environmentally friendly.
