SUSTAINABILITY AT LATTEXPLUS FESTIVAL 2019
To tackle the climate crisis this year, we decided that sustainability is even more one of the core values of the festival as climate change is. Our aim is to engage people in respecting the surroundings of Parco Delle Cascine, Florence’s biggest and oldest park.
A starting point to spread a more sustainable approach during music and cultural events and hopefully in everyone’s daily life.
This edition’s action points are:
– HARDCUPS In collaboration with ABSOLUT, with your first drink we will ask a deposit of X euro and you will receive a durable cup which is intended to be reused throughout the whole duration of your stay at the festival and after it. If you pick up some spare cups at the festival you will be credited of the deposit of each cup. The festival is completely straw-free.
– PAANDAA in order to reduce and improve the waste collection of plastic (plastic bottles and beer glass), we’ve teamed up with the PAANDAA HOUSE a machine able to collect different type of plastic with a storage capacity of 6000 bottles. Who recycles with PAANDAA obtains a fiscal incentive and commercial bonus (1/2 token discount to collect at the cashier points). Two houses will be stored in the Outdoor arena of the festival.
– WASTE Nothing is destroyed, everything is transformed: your support in terms of separate collection of waste is fundamental to reduce the impact of the festival. Please throw away your personal waste and trash as follows:
ORGANIC > BROWN BINS
PAPER > YELLOW BINS
PLASTIC > PAANDAA HOUSE
MIXED WASTE > GREY BINS
– FOOD AREA please keep in mind to keep your environment neat and clean, and you’re the only one responsible for your trash. All your cutlery and containers are organic and biodegradable.
