Edition 16: Sustainable Actions
Rudistas, Circular and Plasti.CO: our allies for an environmentally responsible festival.
This year MUTEK MX will collaborate with platforms focused on reducing the environmental impact of large-scale events, promoting co-responsibility between the attendants and organizers. These are our environmental sustainability actions and the steps we’re taking towards being a sustainable festival in collaboration with our allies:
→ Rudistas will compensate the carbon footprint and CO2 emissions resulting from the festival’s activities by investing directly in farmer communities in the state of Querétaro.
Forests are the most powerful carbon capturing systems. By transforming land used for stockbreeding, aggressive agriculture, wood cutting or urban developments into Naturally Regenerating areas, we can contribute to the compensation of carbon emissions coming from urban areas. In order to decrease the impact of the festival’s activities, we collaborate with Rudistas, a platform in charge of measuring the festival’s carbon footprint, contributing to compensation through an endeavor that follows the NAMAS (Nationally Appropriate Mitigation Action) protocol.
A percentage of your ticket will be used to compensate the carbon footprint caused by the festival, allowing Rudistas to work directly in farming communities and ranches of the Sierra Gorda of Querétaro in the transformation of their lands into naturally regenerating areas by providing technology, direct financing and implementation of sustainable practices that allow the local communities to profit from the land.
→ We will have Reusable Cups made with recycled plastic at Nocturne 1 and 2.
With reusable cups made by Circular we will fully eliminate the use of disposable glasses for drinks. You will have two options: being reimbursed for your reusable cup before the end of our Nocturne events (the cup has a price of $30 MXN) or keep it as a memory from MUTEK MX.
→ Together with Plasti.CO we will have optimal handling of our residue.
This platform will be in charge of checking our facilities and training of all of the festival’s staff to have the maximum reduction of disposable plastics and materials, thus having an optimal collection of residue and recycling as much as possible. If you are interested in knowing more practices to eliminate the use of plastics and having less garbage in your everyday life, Plasti.CO has great tips in their digital channels.
Decreasing our environmental impact is everyone’s responsibility. Thanks for enjoying MUTEK MX responsibly.
