Four ways that your recycling helped power at No.6

Four ways that your recycling helped power at No.6

We’re delighted to have teamed up with Recycle for Wales this year to reveal how the energy saved from recycling your festival essentials could power the music. Thank you for making a huge effort to recycle all your waste at this year’s festival.

Here are 4 ways how your recycling has made a difference…

Rag’n’Bone Man Performance
Whether you were drinking alcohol or soft drinks, the energy saved from your recycled cans have amazing energy potential. The energy saved from recycling 43 drinks cans saved enough energy to power Rag’n’Bone Man’s musical performance on Saturday night.

No.6 Late into the Night
Did you party until the early hours? Those recycled water bottles helped to power the music. Just four recycled water bottles would save enough energy to power a mixing console for over an hour… that’s long enough for Greg Wilson’s entire 2 hour set.

The Visuals
The Flaming Lips’ headline performance on Sunday night truly was a visual spectacular. If everyone at the festival recycled 1 beer can, it would save enough energy to power the lighting on Stage No.6 constantly for over 3 ½ days.

Returning Home
A recycled can of spray has the energy potential to power your first post-festival shower. Just one recycled aerosol can saves enough energy to power an eight-minute shower. Although chances are after the festival you needed an extra-long shower, so make sure you recycle those deodorant and hairspray cans too.
