Spain's FIB Goes Green

Ah, summer is most definitely in full swing. Hiking, camping, swimming, and most importantly – music festivals. The coolest thing about this year is that more and more festival organizers are incorporating green practices into their tours. And this year, Spain’s International Festival of Benicàssim (FIB) is not one to be behind the curve.

Advertising and shopping at the fair is being done with recycled or recyclable goods, and the organizers intend to comp their carbon emissions for this and the next two years by planting more than 2,000 trees. Plans for sharing transportation and hiring bicycles have also been added into the mix, as well as a system for separating and recycling all waste.

They’re also handing out free earplugs to the festival goers. If only I’d thought of that when I was at Warped Tour a few years back. The constant greening of music festivals and artists’ solo tours is definitely a plus and will hopefully encourage other festivals and artists to follow suit. Looks like going to concerts and other festivals is becoming the green thing to do – and that’s quite alright with me!

For more information – including how to get tickets – you can visit FIB’s website. Who’s up for Spain this summer?

If you’re mourning Sudan the rhino, go vegan

The world needs more vegans because more than dollars or pledges or sad-emoji riddled posts, our individual efforts can stop the demand for horns, for zoos, for animal flesh, and for the exploitation of any living being.

Criticize veganism, but don’t discredit it

Oppressive and harmful behaviour has no place in a movement rooted in anti-oppression.
