An eco-responsible festival
The Cooksound Festival is part of a strong sustainable development policy, integrating eco-responsibility into its organization, with a large number of waste sorting and recycling systems, the presence of dry toilets, compostable dishes, and the incentive to carpooling to minimize greenhouse gas emissions. Since the beginning, our philosophy has always been to set up an event in line with our eco-responsible values by implementing various tools.
The Cooksound Festival is a member of COFEES network (Collective of 16 eco-responsible festivals in PACA), a network carrying an unprecedented initiative: 16 live performance events among the most emblematic of the South region are associated with the collective to propose innovative and concrete actions in environmental and societal matters.
In partnership with the "Lignes Express Régionales" in the region PACA (LER), on presentation of the ticket dated the day, you will benefit from a reduced rate for the festival. We want to encourage the use of public transport instead of the car.
The gastronomic aspect being an important part of the event, we use seasonal and organic food that we offer you throughout the festival. Our culinary proposals are of high quality due to our work with many agricultural producers, which helps to minimize greenhouse gas emissions due to transport.
Non-perishable food that has not been used during the event are redeemed by the suppliers to avoid waste. We exclusively use biodegradable crockery (plate and cutlery) and we recycle our waste into composts in the shared gardens of the municipality.
