Following the most romantic date of the year, it’s time to put on our costumes and party! Responsibly, of course. In fact, that’s why we’re here, to share the moment with you with a tad of that special sprinkle of environmental awareness!
Carnival is not just another party around the world’s block, it’s speculated to be the oldest party dating back to ancient Egypt and Greece! One that we must cherish due to its original noble meaning in celebrating the renewal of fertility, nature, and spring. Taking into consideration the essence of the season and how it evolved in today’s society, the least we could do is not deviate from its spirit and symbolism. Unfortunately, the negative environmental footprint doesn’t come as a complete surprise since it brings millions of people together.
For instance, in 2019 the city of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, had more than 7 million people attending celebrations and with them 1.8 million tons of littering. An increase of 14% more than the previous year, which just keeps on rising!
Let’s try and do better, for ourselves and the planet:
- Get creative and have fun in the process using clothes and materials you already own, giving them your unique & personal touch!
- Rent your costume! There are many rental shops with a variety of fun costumes ready to show their potential!
Setting an example can change people’s perspectives. In the fight against climate change, planning ahead and trying out new alternatives end up making all the difference! That being said, we wish you a splendid zero-waste Carnival!
We’ll see you next week!
