Sustainability

We are committed to be an ambassador of change and create a festival that leaves a positive impact on our country and beyond.

Waste Recycling

Just as last year, we will be collecting plastic, aluminium, and glass waste throughout the festival. About 30-40% of the waste produced during the event can be reused or recycled. To further improve these results, there will be about 50 Volunteers going around the festival and collecting selective waste.

Our goal is to achieve a 50% recycling rate at least.

An environmentally friendly space for all, the South Outdoor Festival is also offering a dedicated green space to children 3-10 years old. From activities ranging from “How to become an activist” to taking part in compost challenges and creating one’s own arts & crafts from waste, we highly value raising awareness among younger generations.

Art from Waste

Many admire recycled art, as it’s clever and imaginative! But you may also just want a few pieces to feature in your homes, or maybe you just enjoy looking.

Here at South Outdoor Festival you can find it all, admire our recycled art installations or try to build one together with your children.

We will be offering water from the main water supply of Borsh, of the same quality as that found water bottles. Refilling a reusable water bottle makes a huge difference in the volume of plastic bottle waste. Look for the water droplet symbols on the map to locate these points.

 

Paper Services

To show our dedication on making the festival as sustainable as possible, our delicious food will be served in recycled paper dishes, hence lessening the environmental footprint.

Reusable Cups

Reusable Cups

"Never give up on your cup": this year at South Outdoor Festival, drinks will be poured into reusable cups. Buy your first cup (100 ALL), then take your used one back and receive a new one. If you don’t want to lug your cup around all night, you can exchange it and get your money back. 

Don’t Suck!

You won't see plastic straws at our bars, as they are extremely harmful to the environment; therefore our bartenders will only provide reusable straws, upon request.
