From Friday 19 to Sunday 28 November, Bordeaux Métropole is organizing the ZZ Festival, an event intended to highlight the many community and civic initiatives in terms of waste prevention, reduction and recovery. For this second edition, more than 250 events open to the general public will be distributed throughout the territory. It is also an opportunity for citizens to question their habits as consumers.
Reducing the amount of waste, a challenge for the metropolis
Bordeaux Métropole is in the process of drawing up its waste plan with the objective of reducing the quantity produced by each inhabitant by 15%, ie going from 517 kg to 440 kg by 2030. Amongst others the avenues envisaged, the recovery of waste constitutes an important lever. This is why the metropolis, which wants to be exemplary in terms of zero waste, has already set up ecopoints and a reuse area on its territory.
One of the festival’s ambitions is to offer residents concrete tools and demonstrations to enhance, recycle and sort correctly what may initially look like “waste”. Some examples: how to make your own natural paint, cosmetics and household products, how to recover a composter and learn about composting techniques, how to make students take care of the same food waste, what are the places of solidarity to deposit and / or buy books, clothes …
Among the highlights:
– Round table “The challenges of zero waste in large cities” around Patrick Labesse, vice-president of Bordeaux Métropole in charge of collection, sorting, waste recovery and the zero waste policy, and elected officials from other French metropolises – Tuesday 23 November at 6.30 p.m. at the Hotel of Bordeaux Métropole or directly on social networks,
– Exposure “This year, I am zero waste! “ around the drawings of the Bordeaux illustrator Camille Piantanida – visible in the lobby of the Hôtel de Bordeaux Métropole from Monday to Friday, from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. during the ZZ Festival,
– Workshops “Zero waste Christmas gifts” homemade and eco-responsible – Wednesday November 24 at 2 p.m., Thursday 25 and Friday 26 at 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. at the Jardin l’Éphémère in Bègles.
