Tao Festival 2017: A green festival

Posted 04:57, 26 March 2017 (vu 17795 fois)

From 28 to 29 March 2017 will take place on the island of Koh Tao the TAO Music & Underwater Festival.

The festival will be cultural, artistic and especially green. Spans international personalities will also be present as the Group Arrested Development ("remember to")People Everyday"or even"Mr. Wendal"). The event is particularly supported by Catherine Berthillier (formerly reporter for "Special Envoy") through its ecological project"Shamengo".

Hip-Hop, Electro, House, dance, performance art, pictures and Visual arts exhibitions will take place during 3 days and 3 nights on two different locations with central theme of environmental protection.

For this festival, everything has been designed around the ecology.

All the artists who come from Bangkok take a single plane to limit carbon footprint. All toilets turn to compost. In the stalls the use of plastic will be limited and replaced by biodegradable or reusable materials. For example, the snacks will be served in plates with cutlery and glasses biodegradable banana leaves. Local and organic food will be preferred. People will be encouraged to limit waste of water soft, hard to produce on Koh Tao it there will be bins for recycling with color codes.

Part of the profits of the festival will be used to sort 45,000 tons of waste that are currently pending at the top of Aowleuk stokes.

The building for the night festivities will be kept to become the rest of the year the "Ocean School", an eco-village with workshops to educate schools, locals and tourists.

Star Board, leader of Stand Up Paddle in Bangkok will be partner to organize sessions of beach cleanup after the party called for volunteers.
