STAYING GREEN

The Earth, yes this round ball we live on, we all need it and we are fully aware of the current issues affecting our environment so #DISTRICT is fully committed to doing our part to lessen the environmental impact of the festival footprint. There are a number of things you could commit to as well and lend us a hand in staying green.

TRAVEL

Travel Wisely! Traveling to the festival makes up 80% of the total carbon emissions generated. You could save money, make friends and go green by traveling by Gautrain or Car Share.

RECYCLE

Bin stations in the festival footprint are formed by 4 bins and will be monitored by staff and volunteers to ensure they are kept free from contamination;

  • FOOD WASTE – Any left over food.
  • GENERAL WASTE – In here put crisp & sweet packets, coffee cups & lids and cigarette butts, remember everything in this bin will get incinerated. (no used greasy pizza boxes as these do not recycle)
  • COMPOSTABLE –  All vendors are required to use biodegradable serving units.
  • PLASTIC & TINS –

PLASTIC

  • Due to the problems that plastic waste causes to the environment all plastic bottles and cups sold at the Festival will have a deposit so we can make sure they get recycled. Deposits can be redeemed at the Bars.
  • No bottled water will be sold, you can purchase an official Festival water bottle which comes with filtered water and complimentary top ups.
  • No straws will be available.

The festival is committed in keeping the festival clean and green and we are working together to eliminate single use plastic items.
