GREEN ZONE

Good speeches about eco-responsibility do sound great, being consistent on the the field is better. Especially when you call for a large mobilization. We could claim that everything is under control when it comes to our ecological footprint, but we have to be humble in the face of the scale of the task: no festival can claim to be 100% green.
In order to be in the best transparency on this central subject and to improve on a regular basis, a carbon analisis of the festival is carried out every year by an independent firm. To go further, our team also performs a self-diagnosis about single-use plastics. The subject is thought out in its entirety to protect soils, trees, spend less energy, save water, pool resources, transport, turn waste into new ressource, repair, transform, in short, change habits, and first of all ours.
The festival’s Green Zone was designed precisely to respond to all these issues, to all these questions and to confront our own inconsistencies. A place of exchange, action and discovery, the Green Zone will host movies broadcasts, conferences, workshops, NGOs, in connection with the cross-themes that are dear to us, sport, culture and ecology. The full program will be revealed to you here very soon!

ACTIONS

PLASTICS

SINGLE USE

Gourds allowed (Until 5pm)

Single-use plastic water bottles are no longer tolerated in the festival village. Water is free on request in the various bars and the numerous water points. We recommend that you bring a water bottle to stay independent throughout the day.
(NG gourds are also very swag)

ECOCUPS CAUTION 2€

If everyone brings their cups back at the end of the festival, no need to produce any for the following year!
The concept of the reusable cup is precisely to be able to reuse it, not to stack it again on the collection of previous years.

REUSABLE ALTERNATIVES TESTS

Sustainable alternatives for signs and technical organization (cable ties, gaffer) exist. Even though they are more expensive, reusing them makes them more profitable and more ecofriendly.

OTHERS TRASH

RECYCLING

This action is carried out in partnership with the sorting center, the Millau Grands Causses agglomeration and several associations specialized in major events clean-up.

XXL ASHTRAYS

Always facing the issue of cigarette butt management, we have decided to increase the number of XXL ashtrays throughout the site.

CIGARETTE BUTTS PICKUP

At the end of the festival, several pickup sessions are carried out by the organization. More than 8kg collected in 2019! Too drunk to find the ashtrays? We have the solution!

LOWCOST POCKET ASHTRAYS

No more excuses for throwing your butt on the ground, swaggy mini pocket ashtrays are on sale in the NG shop.

PUSH A SMART DIGITAL COMMUNICATION

At a time when everyone is connected, gogo saving trees!

RECYCLING & UPCYCLING MATERIALS

We collect and we create a fun and “instagramable” decor being in the same time ecological.

FLUIDS

Water spots and toilets equipped with prestos to avoid waste.
For those who still don’t know how to turn off a tap.

Updating our newsletter database to send information only to those who are interested and therefore reduce server load. Did you know ?
A sent email consumes as much as one hour light turned on.

Part of the halogen lighting has been replaced by low-consumption LEDs. For an even more natural atmosphere.

GREENHOUSE GAS EMISSION

CARBON BALANCE IN 2019

The event’s GHG emissions were 702 tonnes of CO2.
Knowing that one tonne of CO2 is what the production of 8,500kg of potatoes emits !!!
(It makes more fries than you could eat during your hole life …)

CARPOOL PROMOTION

Travel by festival-goers and competitors generates 63% of the event’s GHG emissions. By calling on our public to favor public transport, or in any case to travel with others, we encourage them to reduce their carbon footprint.

CARPOOL GROUP CREATION

The goal here is to promote the connection between people who offer trips and those who are looking for them in order to optimize each trip as much as possible.

LOCAL TEAM

The festival teams, a majority of volunteers and providers come from around Millau. It may seem insignificant, but all these people are mobilized several days before and after the event. And therefore, the closer they live to the festival site, the less GHG they emit.
PS: We welcome all motivated people as long as they like aligot.

LESS GENERATORS

Thanks to site optimization and the energy transition, only 2 generators are needed (instead of 3 previously).

FOOD

RECYCLED PAPER TOWELS

Pour que ceux qui ont du mal à manger un burger sans avoir de la sauce dans le nez et de la salade dans les oreilles puissent essuyer tout ça sans culpabiliser.

SALT, PEPPER AND SAUCES

To avoid waste and the production of individual containers that are not ecofriendly
(and so boring to open).

FRYING OILS COLLECTING

Because a festival-goer consumes even more fries than a Tuche!

BAR SOFTS IN KEGS OR 1 LITER GLASS BOTTLES (INSTEAD OF CANS)

0 aluminum cans = 0 waste.
Drums and glass bottles are directly reused.

COMPOSTING FOOD WASTE FROM RESTAURANTS

Recycling waste and helping local farmers (who use compost): the perfect combo!

LOCAL EXHIBITORS

Local food stand equal less travel but also short circuit supply. Welcom in Aveyron!

SENSITIZATION

GREEN PAGE ON OUR WEBSITE

To inform festival-goers about our commitments, our approach and their role to play. We are happy that you are reading it, we hope you like it!

POSTS ABOUT THE ACTIONS TO ADOPT TO TEAMS + PARTNERS + ARTISTS + EXHIBITORS

Inform and mobilize all event members around our commitments.

SCHOOL STUDENTS HOST AND AWARENESS

When it is about loving nature and want to preserve it, there is no age. That’s why the NGs have hosted nearly 800 schoolchildren each year for 10 years.

WHAT'S NEXT ...?

WORK IN PROGRESS

We still have plenty of ideas for the future and these projects also involve your participation. As festival-goers, you can help us reduce our impact on the environment, in particular by optimizing your means of transport, but also by properly sorting your waste in the festival, etc.

Together, we will be able to achieve our goal of an eco-responsible event.
We count on you, feel free to send us your comments and ideas.

ECO-MOBILITY

To come to NG, think “Eco-responsible transport”.

Between carpooling, train, bus, bicycle or even hitchhiking (www.rezopouce.fr), there are many options. Whether you are a driver or passenger, organized or not, there will always be an eco-responsible solution that will suit you.

If organizing is not what youdo best, www.tictactrip.eu is here to make your job easier by comparing and combining all the means of transport available to you. If you are from Occitanie, check out cheaps lio trains and bus

Finally, if you are wondering which means of eco-responsible transport is best for you, take a look at our guide.

CHARTERS

1. NG VALUES

“Natural Games Foundations:
Bring together responsible behavior and principles of pleasure […]
Participate in the defense and protection of the living world in all its forms […]

Organization rules:
Develop ecofriendly practices and educate as many people as possible about the protection of our natural playground […]
Encourage local purchases and support for the local economy (printer, food, brewer, hosters, sound engineer, equipment and vehicle rental companies, etc.). ”

2. GRANDS CAUSSES NATURAL PARC CHARTER MEMBERS

In 2014, we signed the charter of the Grands Causses Natural Park which formalizes our commitment to the preservation of the local ecosystem.

Indeed, each competition that takes place in the Parc area has a complete description file and has to be validated by the protective authorities of the territory.

3. DOP CHARTER SIGNERS

In 2019, we signed the Drastic On Plastic charter.
This device supports festivals in the reduction and elimination of single-use plastic in three years.

A self-diagnosis was therefore carried out that year, giving birth to an action plan.
