I CHOOSE TO RECYCLE

In order to raise awareness about the significance and importance of recycling Belgrade Beer Fest, in cooperation with Ball Packaging Europe, Recan Recycling Foundation and its partners Zaječarsko, BIP, Lav and Ledeni Kvas this year organizes again for the ninth year in a row, socially responsible and ecological campaign I choose to recycle.

At Recan stand at the plateau next to the entrance no. 1, a Wheel of Fortune will be set up, so the visitors who bring at least three empty cans will have the opportunity to win one of the prizes of the I choose to recycle campaign - Zaječarsko, BIP or Lav beer in the can, or Ledeni Kvas, if they prefer non-alcoholic refreshments.

 

Recan Foundation this year promotes its campaign Every can counts, which will give visitors the opportunity to recycle beverage cans at several points within the festival space.

This year within Beer Fest area we will set up three smart presses for aluminium cans that will work on the principle of downloading the free online application "Solagro - Future of recycling", which will be available on the internet from August 8th. On this occasion, user creates his account in the application, delivers empty cans at the Recan Foundation stand, where the smart press calculates points and in this way the visitor receives the prize. The bearer of 40 empty cans receives a men's t-shirt, one with 30 cans wins a women's t-shirt, one with 15 empty cans receives a frisbee, and for 5 empty cansone will receive a whistle. Otherwise, through this application, visitors will be able to collect points even after the completion of Belgrade Beer Fest, at several locations in Belgrade, where smart interactive presses will be placed.

 

In thehonour of the 15th birthday of Belgrade Beer Fest at Ušće, a special, two meter high, metal installation BEER FEST will be placed. A modern installation in the form of 3D letters will be one of the biggest attractions of this year's beer festival. The letters will be filled daily with empty cans during five festival days, and selfie with BEER FEST 3D letters will surely be an important topic on social networks during the 15th Belgrade Beer Fest.

Let's be responsible to our environment!
