The lake. The land. The people.
Welcome to Garbicz Festival!
Nature & Sustainability
It is, we believe, a magical place that can lead to a real connection with the Earth and your relation to it.
For this to happen, we want you to really embrace what we’ve created and implemented on the site.
Our approach is based on the waste pyramid. Firstly, we try to avoid as much artificial material as possible. No plastic is sold on the site. If you really need some, just find the nearest ocean and jump in it – you will find enough there. Joking aside, we really hate plastic and would ask you to avoid bringing any here if possible.
The dishes and cutlery at the Food Court are compostable bioplastics. The water from the pipes is pure and drinkable. Try to bring your own drinking vessels. Bring your own cutlery and plates.
We try to recycle materials as much as possible, in particular building materials. What remains as rubbish we dispose of according to local regulations. That is why we separate everything into glass, cardboard and residual waste.
The lake and the water play a special role in Garbicz. The lake is part of a coherent network of protected areas within the European Union (Natura 2000) and requires special attention. Therefore, the entry of cosmetic products in the water is strictly prohibited. That means no sunscreen or soap.
No human waste in the water or the Garbicz monster will eat you alive.
There is a horde of people with rubbish bags. They are the ‘Conscious Team’. They give their time to do something good to the earth and to liberate you from your inner pollution by un-polluting around you.
Help them please!
