The Bhopal Medical Appeal made a statement about cleaning up at Glastonbury this year.
Michael Eavis has recently become a patron of the BMA and, thanks to this fantastic news, we were able to substantially raise our game at Glastonbury this year.
We had 80 litter pickers this year and we arranged for them to bring certain of the litter back to our marquee, just beside the Leftfield stage, for recycling into sculptures.
The scupltures included various over-sized figures representing Bhopali people collecting water plus one giant sized skull- all built to light up at night.
As an aside, we were also cleaning the hands of passers by with a special organic, chemical and alcohol-free hand sanitizer of our own making.
We were cleaning up Glastonbury. Nobody is cleaning up Bhopal.
