Philippines’ Wristband Return Rate at Coldplay’s Concert Records 87%

The wristband return rate in the Philippines during Coldplay’s “Music of the Spheres World Tour” only got 87%. The country that had the highest wristband return rate was Japan (97%), followed by Denmark (96%).

Attendees were given reusable LED wristbands or Xylobands at every Coldplay concert, which must be returned at the end of the show. The British rock band has been making this effort to reduce the carbon footprint of their concerts and promote sustainable initiatives. That means returning the wristbands makes you a part of the advocacy and initiatives.

The Philippines’ low wristband return rate sparked debate among concertgoers and netizens. Some expressed disappointment and called out those who kept it as a “remembrance.” Meanwhile, others emphasized the importance of “discipline.” There were also netizens who were surprised that it reached 87%.
