We implemented an end-to-end waste management system at the event. Overall around 4 tonnes of waste was generated, of which more than 80% of the trash was recycled, composted, reused or donated. We also had a food donation program in place to make sure all excess edible food was shared with people who could use an extra meal.
94% of the waste generated at the event was diverted away from the landfills!
The organisers took it to the next level by doing away with disposable plastic bottles and instead placed water dispensers💧across the route. Runners were provided with hot, wholesome and healthy meals 🍛instead of packaged foods, ridding the event of all that plastic packaging 😰 waste. Eating from compostable plates and cutleries 🍽️ made the breakfast even better. And all runners took away a little green something as well. Their kit included a plant 🌱 to take home, and the bibs were made from recycled paper with seeds in it. How awesome is that! 😎
We are so thrilled to have worked with Mahindra Blues to help them go green! Of the 2,678 kgs of waste generated, 90% was recycled, composted, reused or donated. 🌏💚
The festival took some incredible steps towards sustainability and reduced their use of disposable plastics. They did away with plastic bottled water and set up free water stations across the venue 😎. They also went straw-free, coz well straws suck. And the food vendors used compostable plates and donated any leftovers to the homeless. 🤗
We closed 2017 with our biggest project yet, Bacardi NH7 Weekender music festival in Pune. We managed over 10 tonnes of trash and are excited to share that 85% of this was diverted from the dumping grounds!🤘 Where did this go, you ask? To recycling plants, biogas plants, composting units, polyfuel plants and for reuse!
The highlights include salvaging 1500kgs of flex banners by donating these for reuse as roofing material or sending it to #RudraEnvironmental for processing into polyfuel. We also implemented a food salvage program where 350kgs of leftover food was distributed to labourers, homeless folks and in slums. 🍔🥗
A big shout out to the incredible Bacardi NH7 Weekender team for being so amazing and for constantly pushing the sustainability bar with each event. It’s such an honour to partner with them on their journey to zero waste. They are leading the way and inspiring events to adopt responsible and sustainable practices. #BeLikeThem #Zerowaste
Throwback to the stunning Mahindra Kabira music festival, held at the mystical ghats of Varanasi. A celebration of music, culture and poet Kabir. The festival is a huge hit in Varanasi and the ghats were teeming with music lovers, what a sight! We managed the waste at the 3-day festival and enjoyed some incredible music at the sights. With thousands of people attending the events, the festival diverted over 85% of its waste. This was reused, recycled and sent to biogas plants ✅😍 Such a pleasure working with the Mahindra group and Teamwork Arts on this project!
The quaint, beach-side music festival in Alibaug generated 365kgs of waste, of which 73% was recycled or composted. The organisers banned plastics and flex material from the venue, set up free water stations, and mandated the use of compostable plates and cutleries. Separate bins were set up for Food Waste and Recyclable Waste, with clear signage and reusable bin liners. Food waste was sent for composting to an organic farm and recyclable material was sent to recycling facilities.
