REDUCING PLASTIC WASTE

Windcraft Music Fest makes an effort in reducing plastic waste, by using only paper and reusable cups for drinks.

Help us recycle by disposing your rubbish in the right bin for glass, paper, plastic or general trash!

This year we are also teaming up with Precious Plastic Cyprus, who will be collecting plastic lids in order to turn them into useful products.

Precious Plastic Cyprus are part of a global community of thousands of people working towards a sustainable solution to plastic pollution. The movement has been developed as part of the essential need to reuse plastic “waste” which would end up in disposal sites and our natural environment.

Precious Plastic is an equilibrated combination between people’s knowledge and technology, by combining engineering, design, art and circular economy, all at its various aspects in creating an alternative local recycling system.
