"Nitros Oxide not welcome" says Glastonbury

In 2014, over two tonnes of nos canisters were removed by litter-pickers from the festival site, with disposed canisters becoming an increasingly familiar sight across UK festivals. Writing on the official Galstonbury website, the Green Fields co-ordinator has said the following...

" ... Sadly the King’s Meadow has lost its way. It’s become known as a place where people take nitrous oxide, a damaging drug which pollutes our beautiful field with noise, litter and N2O gas (a greenhouse gas which is 298 times more polluting than carbon dioxide). Nitrous oxide is also dangerous: an exploding canister was the source of a major injury at last year’s Glastonbury.
It breaks our hearts to see our Sacred Space used this way ... "
