ROLLIN’ GREEN – GREEN LIGHT FOR MUSIC AND A GREENER PLANET!
We are very happy to see that the festival and cultural community has started to take up the idea of ecological optimization. We have been trying to reduce our ecological footprint for many years, and for this year we have made a lot of major improvements. This is why Let It roll ranked among the most environmentally responsible festivals in the Czech Republic. We are now rolling out the Rollin’ Green programme, which will focus on three key issues.
No plastic straws on Let It Roll! In the festival area you can sort and recycle all waste without exceptions, just like you do at home – the only thing you need to do is look for one of the many Green Points. All bars will be serving drinks in reusable cups as usual, and, moreover, we will be introducing new eco-friendly fully biodegradable tableware for food.
CARBON FOOTPRINT REDUCTION
You can help us greatly reduce the carbon footprint by using our shuttles and party buses to get to the festival. We are also preparing a bike rental service so that you can leave the car in the campsite and go for a bike trip to the nearest swimming pond!
We recycle everything that can be recycled. If you want a festival souvenir, you can get a LIRcase for your sunglasses made from the plastic parts of the stage. Or just sit and relax on a designer bench that is made up of sorted plastic bottles. And by the way, abandoned tents and sleeping bags will be given to people in need, so really nothing will be wasted. If you simply don’t want or need your camping gear anymore, just bring it over to the INFO booth and we will take care of the rest.
Our partners for the Rollin’ Green programme are notable experts in the field – the Czech University of Life Sciences and the Augiášův chlév company, which provides comprehensive waste management services for outdoor events. Join us and help us make Let It Roll greener!
Augliášův chlév company has recently attended the International Engineering Fair in Brno. Together with our Rollin’ Green project, they’ve made a statue entirely out of PET bottles which were collected at Let It Roll 2019 festival. They’ve made a point that circular economy and waste sorting have a clear purpose. More information to be found HERE.
