by Suchismita Pal 164

Sustainability is an emerging trend that has penetrated consciousness among consumers across diverse sectors. From eco-friendly cafes serving food made from freshly-sourced, unadulterated ingredients to agencies promoting sustainable tourism, every industry is a part of the movement. Now a musical concert too is abiding by its ethos. Lollapalooza India is all set to be India’s zero garbage festival with a plethora of measures like waste segregation stations, waste sorting zone, a zero-food-waste programme and more. It’s time to say ‘no’ to waste. Are you ready?

Lollapalooza India, A Musical Fiesta With Artists From All Across The Globe Like Imagine Dragons And AP Dhillon

Lollapalooza India will be a multi-genre musical extravaganza, which will take place at Mumbai’s Mahalaxmi Race Course on January 28 and 29, 2023. The event will feature performances by top bands from around the globe, like Imagine Dragons, The Wombats, Greta Van Fleet and The Strokes and artists like Prateek Kuhad and AP Dhillon, to name a few. And the organisers are collaborating with Skrap with a cause. Wondering what? Diverting over 90% of waste off the landfills.

Use Reusable Cups And Grab Extra Discounts

The event is bolstering the use of products that are eco-friendly and recyclable. For example, those opting for reusable cups made from crop waste can get an extra ₹50 discount at the bars. Also, if you’re carrying your own water bottles ( except metal bottles), you can get free water from the water stations. Your sustainable behaviour can help you grab discounts. How cool is that?

Segregation Of Wastes At The Waste Sorting Zone

‘Trash Talk’ volunteers will instruct festival goers on the waste segregation procedure at significant waste generation sites like the Lolla Food Park. Waste segregation stations at the site will help visitors segregate their garbage. All recyclable and biodegradable waste will reach the composting facilities or dry waste centres for additional processing. Waste will be sorted into around 15 categories like plastic, cans, glass bottles, cardboard, food scraps, compostable plates, and e-waste, at the waste sorting zone.

Along with its waste management partner Skrap, Lollapalooza India will implement a zero-food-waste programme in which all leftover, edible food will be gathered and distributed in advance to nearby NGOs and low-income communities.
