Hey, it's a festival. Garbage is going to be an issue. And we applaud the organizers of Coachella in their attempts to, you know, prevent our planet from being ruined. But this is a little much.
"Landfill"? That's garbage, right? But, we're supposed to feel shame for using it? "Mixed Recycling"? Why not just "Recycling"? And "Compost," are you serious? People are supposed to scrape their uneaten foodstuffs off their plates? Using what, their fingers? Clearly everyone was as perplexed as we: the contents of the compost bin, above, is clearly not compost.
In fact, turns out Mother Nature herself thinks this is all pretty silly, as you can see in the video below.
We heard about one guy using a liberated cardboard bin as an outfit. It's cold out there, folks.
