A Greener Festival
As you probably know we try to be a green festival and that is not because we are trying to greenwash you.
From the start of Paradise City we decided to minimize the carbon and ecological footprint of the festival, and go full on for a green policy. To be honest that hasn’t made our job easier, it demands a lot of extra effort, investment, and dealing with mistakes. We truly believe the future of this planet can be bright but that our generation needs to stand up and do something about it. We decided to start with our cozy little festival and try to convince Paradise Citizens of the benefits and the necessity of a greener lifestyle.
It’s with these ideas that we try to build our festival as green as possible, improving ourselves year after year and knowing that we still have a long way ahead of us.
Today marks an important milestone for us in our journey and we are very proud to have attained a Highly Commended Award at the ‘A Greener Festival Awards 2017’.
« Highly Commended signifies a well-managed environmentally aware festival, which has taken significant steps to reduce waste, reduce their greenhouse gas emissions and to engage with the audience. With the continued development of the Greener Festival Assessment criteria festivals have been challenged more than ever to be awarded, and this really is a great example of the work Paradise City do. The improvement to jump two levels of the award in one year is unprecedented and an utterly incredible achievement. »
We would like to thank A Greener Festival for the award and every person who has helped us make our festival greener over the years.
At the same time, we acknowledge we still have a lot of areas of improvement and we will work continuously to reduce the ecological impact of our festival.
Let’s meet at Paradise City 2018 on June 29, 30th and July 1st.
