With biodegradable material in the bars, the system of reusable solidarity cups, and corn starch straws reinforce the festival’s green profile. All catering services include bio-compostable materials. Their recycling along with organic waste allows them to be reused for compost.
MORE FOUNTAINS. THE END OF BOTTLES
The festival completely eliminates plastic bottles from its venue. As an alternative for the public, it broadens the number of water fountains (6 in the campsite and 7 in the venue) at an affordable price: a 3 euro card gets you six 40 cl glasses of water. Furthermore, Rototom extends the osmosis system to all bars. The plastic bottles have also been removed from the vending machines at the entrances. To ensure that the public has access to water, on August 15 and 16, there will a water fountain installed in front of the ticket office to dispense water for free. Cups and canteens will be on sale in the InfoPoint.
The festival is committed to the efficient use of water resources having installed two tanks to use, after filtering, the water from the shower drains to fill the toilet cisterns.
All the containers installed in the venue and the campsite, are recycling points. They are small, to reduce the visual impact and to be easily distributed throughout. This has made it possible to reinforce selective waste collection thanks to public awareness and involvement.
NO MORE BUTTS
A cigarette butt takes between one and ten years to decompose. To avoid this and to help festival goers collaborate in keeping the festival clean the Rototom will install 40 containers in the festival venue and the campsite.
MINI GREEN LUNG
This winter, the camping received new inhabitants: 70 olive trees to shade, oxygenate the environment, counteract CO2 emissions and consolidate this small green lung in the festival. In total more than five hundred trees have been planted in the campsite.
Solé Rototom Beach, the festival’s official beach bar, together with the NGO Exodus promotes different collective actions to clean the coast of plastics, cigarette butts and trash and to raise awareness about the need to care for the environment.
WE ARE 'GREENSPLASH'
The use of LED technology in the different areas; the commitment to sustainable mobility, with the promotion of public transport and bicycles to move around the site; and patterns of responsible consumption that prioritize local products are three other vertices of the ‘greensplash’, Rototom’s green philosophy.
INCLUSIVE AND SOCIAL PROFILE
In its effort to democratize the Rototom experience, the festival has a system of free tickets for children under 13, the over 65’s and people with disabilities greater than 65%, together with a companion. The unemployed can enter the festival one day for the symbolic price of 5 euros.
All the facilities are adapted: ramps at the entrances, a platform in the backstage and platforms in front of the main stage; there are accessible toilets throughout the venue, adapted bathrooms and showers in the campsite and a specific parking area for people with reduced mobility, who have a special window at the ticket office to enter the venue faster and more conveniently.
