Ibiza’s DC10 has announced that it is banning single-use plastics from the club.
The announcement was made yesterday (14th May) as the club posted about Circoloco’s opening party next Monday 20th May.
Pictured above you can see the recyclable water bottles that will be available to buy in the club. As yet, DC-10 has not detailed how much these bottles will cost or whether or not they will be installing refill stations for drinking water in the club.
In January last year, Ibiza authorities pledged to ban single-use plastics across the island from 2020, including the prohibition of plastic cups, straws, disposable lighters and even coffee machine capsules.
"Our territory is limited and environmentally sensitive, while an economy mainly based on tourism sends the use of such items spiralling", Sebastiá Sansó, director general of the region’s environmental department, told The Local at the time. "We want to be fully recyclable by 2020."
In an interview with DJ Mag last year, duo Blond:ish spoke about the importance of sustainability on the White Isle.
