Events, be it a concert, a trade fair or a festival, often generate a significant amount of waste. Plastic cups, packaging, flyers and other disposable items quickly pile up in large quantities. The impact of this waste on the environment is enormous.
The production of disposable items contributes significantly to the waste of resources. Energy and resources are used in the production of plastic cups, packaging and other single-use products. Especially with exhibition stands, it is also the exhibition stand itself. This is often specially designed and built for major events or a wide variety of new elements are produced for this purpose.
It is of great importance to reduce waste at events. This not only relieves the environment, but also saves costs and creates a positive image for organizers and exhibitors.
At the fifteen seconds festival 2023 we have set ourselves exactly that goal. Avoid waste and resource conservation as far as possible. Together with Verena Kassar, zero waste expert and founder of the Gramm Academy, we defined this as an elementary goal right from the planning stage.
