In every city in the world, municipalities are proposing animations to drag more and more tourists. Those can be concerts, sports event, cultural events, national celebration day...
Those events do drag a lot of tourists. But what they leave behind them is very ugly!
Take the example of the recent Tour de France. This race drags a lot of spectators wherever the cyclists are passing through, leaving behind a huge amount of waste, mostly plastics!
Our idea is to transform those events into zero waste events, one city at a time, one event at a time.
We will start with our city of Pornic and choose one event during the summer holidays as this is the time where there is the biggest affluence.
Of course, this have to be a partnership with the municipality.
But we intend to involve all citizens in this organisation, and all local businesses:
During the event, everyone will play the game and make a zero plastic waste day - in bars and restaurants especially. Vendors and suppliers will be asked to provide only reusable or recyclable items. Volunteers among citizens will sponsor tourists to drive them towards a zero waste day.
We will emphasize on the sponsorship principle between people, advance zero or low waste accompanying newbies to change.
