As an organization, we have the goal of uniting Chiliheads around the world. We also endorse certain values as a team. We have been promoting public transport since the start of the Chilifest, last year we called for reusable bags, shopping carts and wheelbarrows to get all your purchased Chili Products home, and we also serve our drinks in glasses and not in plastic cups.
With our festival we also want to keep the ecological footprint under control as we care about the environment. So this year we are going one step further, including a bicycle parking facility near our festival. This year we also offer an alternative with the reusable Chilifest Shoppingbags, which will be for sale at our cash register or plant stand, so that you can take all your things with a reusable cotton bag. Of course you are also still welcome to bring your own backpack / shopper. We also ask our exhibitors not to bring plastic bags for this edition. From 2020 we will ban all plastic bags via the exhibitor rules and we will continue to look for alternatives to organize our festival as ecologically as possible.
If visitors have additional suggestions to make our festival more ecological, tips are also welcome.
