Environmental values is not the reason for anyone, including me, to visit the Ruisrock-festival in Turku this weekend. However, hearing about the efforts the festival arrangers do for the environment makes me really happy I chose this festival.
When you buy tickets, a voluntary donation to protect the Baltic Sea can be included in the ticket price. And the best part, the festival has better recycling opportunities than any this big public event I ever heard of! So everyone visiting Ruisrock this weekend, make sure that you are sober enough to tell the difference between paper, glass and metal 😉
They also encourage people to arrive to the festival by train, bus and bike. Me like.Read more (in Finnish) about the environmental efforts of Ruisrock at www.ruisrock.fi/fi/info/#ymparisto.
I’m so looking forward to seeing Ellie Goulding performing tonight!
