CHAMFEST eco-friendly festival
A big part of CHAMFEST focuses on celebrating our beautiful mountains, and we want to make sure that they are here for generations to come to enjoy too.
There are many parts of our programme which will educate people on how best to respect our natural environment. From table talks with local environmental charities to fun recycling games and workshops for kids organised by our local recycling agency, there are plenty of opportunities to learn how you can help.
Throughout the weekend, we'll be working with AirBeeSeed to encourage people to pick up cigarette butts, reducing pollution of the local environment and contributing to recycling projects that turn this waste into new products.
We will also be ensuring that all of our foodie partners use biodegradable packaging for all food that will be consumed on site, and all of our drinks partners will be supplying reusable cups. This is to minimise the waste that our event produces.
Find out more about getting here and travel, and offset the carbon emissions of your journey.
We have teamed up with Cham Eco Endurance, the charity behind the exciting Evergreen Endurance triathlon, to offer CHAMFEST visitors the opportunity to offset the carbon emissions generated by your trip to Chamonix.
By using the calculator below, you can work out the carbon which will be emitted by your journey to Chamonix, and then offset it by contributing to one of the environmental projects in progress.
We have handpicked Cham Eco Endurance as our partners as they are committed to supporting projects local to the Chamonix valley, which aim to combat the unique environmental problems which affect us here.
During periods of high atmospheric pressure, Chamonix and the surrounding Arve valley suffers from problems linked to air pollution, so the first projects launched by Cham Eco Endurance will tackle this head-on:
- Planting trees – the best natural way to lock carbon out of the atmosphere
- Supporting the Buvette du Caillet in replacing their current fuel energy generation with solar panels
More projects will be added over time to offer more options for combatting environmental problems in Chamonix, and you can also choose to allow Cham Eco Endurance to assign your donation to their chosen project.
