PACK YOUR PICNIC IN A PECO Bag

Bring home your very own fashionable Peco Bag!
Say no to plastic and instead opt for an environmentally friendly tote bag to carry your picnic food around.

Made from recovered recycled plastic bottles, the bag is also machine washable, rip resistant and is able to carry 3 times the weight of a normal plastic bag.

reusable tin cups

Festival-goers will be able to rent a Garden Beats tin cup for a $3 fee from Revolv.

Wait are you waiting for? Head to the bar and save $1 on every drink with it.
