Can a music festival be green?



Ecosia is the search engine that plants trees:

This month, Ecosia pledged to plant 80,000 extra trees in Uganda and Indonesia – one for every person who attended the Parisian music festival We Love Green.

But even if you don’t attend the world’s greenest festival, there are many things you can do to party more sustainably this festival season:

* Take a reusable water bottle and a reusable coffee mug.
* Leave no trace – pick up your rubbish and use the bins provided!
* Whenever possible, travel by train, bus or bike.

Do you have any other tips? Any festivals you’re going to this Summer? Let us know in the comments below!

Ecosia is the search engine that plants trees. Every month we invest at least 80% of our surplus in tree planting projects all over the world.

Make Ecosia your default search engine to plant trees while you search the web:

Ecosia is available for Chrome, Firefox, Safari, IE, and many more.

You can also download Ecosia on your mobile:

We also have an online shop! The sales from each t-shirt funds the planting of 20 trees at one of our reforestation sites:

  1. More comments and likes = More views = More awareness = More trees! Don’t forget to like the video!

  2. Well it looks like the answer is yes!! 🙂 However I'm sure many still are not. Do you (ecosia) have plans o come to festivals in the UK soon?

  3. Wir müssen uns bewahren ,was uns das Leben gibt!
    Ich bin sooo froh ,das es noch bewusste Menschen gibt.
    Dankeschön.
    Ich unterstütze euch wo ich nur kann.
    🌳🕊️Peace, Love and Harmony 🕊️🌳

  4. Most sustainable festival on the globe = Boom Festival, Portugal (since 21 years) 😉☮️🕉️🙏🏼

  5. So cool ! I've used ecosia for a long time now I have done like 500 researches ! How many trees is that ? thanks

  6. Great work and my I suggest your next target to be the amazon because based on a somewhat reliable source Ive heard that by 2030 half the amazon will be cut down!

  7. Great work ecosia, at my school I am trying to encourage them to set ecosia as thier default search engine. One step at a time

  8. This is the kind of fest that needs to go global to help raise awareness and fundraise more tree planting like you've managed to do here! I've been an Ecosia user since 2010 and it's great to see that the search engine is finally getting the recognition it deserves and obviously gaining more traction in 2019 (the year of Green activism?) by hitting 50m trees and then 60m trees only a matter of months later!!! Keep up the great work guys and thanks for the hoodie – I'm loving it! 🙌🏽✌🏽🖖🏽🌲🌳💚♻

  9. When you look at it Austria doesnt really care that much about being green. Today i was at the Donauinselfest and the amount of waste was even more shocking than the over-the-top prices.

  10. Oh non… je l'ai loupé #sad c'est quand le prochain ?? mon prochain festival sera celui des Escales à Saint Nazaire

  11. Please add dark mode i will plant 803403249242545494328423493247246234384327432423843493240329432438423943402349239432483243249324203424923420423942943942349243204340384923490234823904290329439429049242842940414014194141941418417184178414814198414821423224242449432842349324724623438432743242384349324032943243842394340234923943248324324932420342492342042394294394234924320434038492349023482390429032943942904924284294041401419414194141841718417841481419841482142322424244943284234932472462343843274324238434932403294324384239434023492394324832432493242034249234204239429439423492432043403849234902348239042903294394290492428429404140141941419414184171841784148141984148214232242424494328423493247246234384327432423843493240329432438423943402349239432483243249324203424923420423942943942349243204340384923490234823904290329439429049242842940414014194141941418417184178414814198414821423224242449432842349324724623438432743242384349324032943243842394340234923943248324324932420342492342042394294394234924320434038492349023482390429032943942904924284294041401419414194141841718417841481419841482142322424244943284234932472462343843274324238434932403294324384239434023492394324832432493242034249234204239429439423492432043403849234902348239042903294394290492428429404140141941419414184171841784148141984148214232242424494328423493247246234384327432423843493240329432438423943402349239432483243249324203424923420423942943942349243204340384923490234823904290329439429049242842940414014194141941418417184178414814198414821423224242449432842349324724623438432743242384349324032943243842394340234923943248324324932420342492342042394294394234924320434038492349023482390429032943942904924284294041401419414194141841718417841481419841482142322424244943284234932472462343843274324238434932403294324384239434023492394324832432493242034249234204239429439423492432043403849234902348239042903294394290492428429404140141941419414184171841784148141984148214232242424494328423493247246234384327432423843493240329432438423943402349239432483243249324203424923420423942943942349243204340384923490234823904290329439429049242842940414014194141941418417184178414814198414821423224242449432842349324724623438432743242384349324032943243842394340234923943248324324932420342492342042394294394234924320434038492349023482390429032943942904924284294041401419414194141841718417841481419841482142322424244943284234932472462343843274324238434932403294324384239434023492394324832432493242034249234204239429439423492432043403849234902348239042903294394290492428429404140141941419414184171841784148141984148214232242424494328423493247246234384327432423843493240329432438423943402349239432483243249324203424923420423942943942349243204340384923490234823904290329439429049242842940414014194141941418417184178414814198414821423224242449432842349324724623438432743242384349324032943243842394340234923943248324324932420342492342042394294394234924320434038492349023482390429032943942904924284294041401419414194141841718417841481419841482142322424244943284234932472462343843274324238434932403294324384239434023492394324832432493242034249234204239429439423492432043403849234902348239042903294394290492428429404140141941419414184171841784148141984148214232242424494328423493247246234384327432423843493240329432438423943402349239432483243249324203424923420423942943942349243204340384923490234823904290329439429049242842940414014194141941418417184178414814198414821423224242449432842349324724623438432743242384349324032943243842394340234923943248324324932420342492342042394294394234924320434038492349023482390429032943942904924284294041401419414194141841718417841481419841482142322424244943284234932472462343843274324238434932403294324384239434023492394324832432493242034249234204239429439423492432043403849234902348239042903294394290492428429404140141941419414184171841784148141984148214232242424494328423493247246234384327432423843493240329432438423943402349239432483243249324203424923420423942943942349243204340384923490234823904290329439429049242842940414014194141941418417184178414814198414821423224242449432842349324724623438432743242384349324032943243842394340234923943248324324932420342492342042394294394234924320434038492349023482390429032943942904924284294041401419414194141841718417841481419841482142322424244943284234932472462343843274324238434932403294324384239434023492394324832432493242034249234204239429439423492432043403849234902348239042903294394290492428429404140141941419414184171841784148141984148214232242424494328423493247246234384327432423843493240329432438423943402349239432483243249324203424923420423942943942349243204340384923490234823904290329439429049242842940414014194141941418417184178414814198414821423224242449432842349324724623438432743242384349324032943243842394340234923943248324324932420342492342042394294394234924320434038492349023482390429032943942904924284294041401419414194141841718417841481419841482142322424244

  12. If it weren't for the renewable energy you're already using renewable energy I'd suggest trying to use the toilet waste as a generator – I saw a tv show where a couple kept farm animals and used their manure to power a generator in their home. Otherwise I only suggest putting a bucket or two in your shower and using the collected water to either water your plants or to use for the toilet if it's been raining, you can get a decent flush or two out of one shower (just a word of warning though, when it comes to number 2's, it's best to just bite the bullet and press flush, trust me).

  13. You forgot to mention pocket ashtrays! But Ecosia is really doing what is important right now and I talk about your browser to everyone🌲

  14. are there any sustainable music festivals in the east coast of the U.S.? would love to know 🙂
