Ecology at Open'er Festival

FIGHTING WASTE AND RECYCLING

  • The majority of the cups in which beverages will be sold will be reusable (deposit PLN 10) / beer 3.5%. We introduced this project in 2018. Other cups are recyclable. The remaining cups are recyclable, the festival-goers help us by throwing the used ones into special garbage cans set up at the festival
  • In food points, it is absolutely forbidden to use plastic and styrofoam disposable dishes.
  • We collect materials for recycling. Each day of the festival, thanks to our ECO volunteers and cleaning crews, we manage to collect most plastic bottles and aluminum beverage cans, paper and cardboard packaging. In addition, we set up bins for disposable cups at the festival, which we also prepare for recycling after initial segregation.

    The vertical baling press - HSM V-Press 610 provided by HSM Polska Sp. z o.o. helps in the proper management of the collected waste. This baler allows to reduce the volume of packaging waste by up to 95%. Thanks to this, the transport of materials for recycling is more economical and, above all, we limit the emission of carbon dioxide and other harmful substances to the atmosphere.
  • At the backstage, we segregate rubbish completely: metals and plastics, paper, glass and bio.
  • We also collect glass waste in points where beverages are poured from glass bottles.
  • Thanks to activities related to selective waste collection, only in 2018 we recycled more than 10 tons of waste.
  • In keeping with the assumptions from 2018, we are still resigning from the use of plastic straws.
  • Cafeteria for employees, restaurant for artists and other food zones are places where we collect waste in order to produce mass used in biogas plants for energy production.
  • At each ALTER CAFE point, we use reusable cups, cane plates, wooden cutlery and coffee stirrers.
  • 80% of clothes from the festival shop are made of organic cotton and their production is almost entirely done in cooperation with Polish brands.
  • Beverages in cans with a capacity of 0.3 l will be allowed in order to reduce the consumption of plastic and energy.

PUBLIC TRANSPORT

  • Thanks to cooperation with the City of Gdynia, there are buses that drive the audience to and from the festival - thanks to this there are much fewer cars in the festival area.
  • Securing the festival requires work of several hundred security staff. They get to the festival via coaches, thanks to that we limit emission of harmful substances into the atmosphere by replacing car transport with collective transport.

ZERO WASTE

  • Zones built by the partners of the festival are designed so that the materials can be used many times. Example: elements of the structure are made of materials used to build the zone in previous years and will also be used during subsequent festivals.
  • There is an ECO POINT at the campsite, where there are upcycling workshops and classes on waste segregation and awareness-raising about the zero waste idea.

FOOD AND WATER

  • Due to the negative impact of meat production on the environment (through increased greenhouse gas emissions), we successively reduce the number of food points offering meat dishes. 80% of sellers offer vegan and vegetarian dishes.
  • Free water at the festival! There will be a cistern with free drinking water available at the festival site!
