If you have ever been to W:O:A you know and love our free Full Metal Bag, containing lots of stuff that improves your festival experience. Discussions with you are more and more often about topics such as sustainability and environmental protection. So last year we took our community’s proposals and produced a bag that was made out of recycled plastics and tried to narrow down the number of printed matters and unnecessary gimmicks.
We’d like to raise that number again by trying to massively lower the share of flyers and such. In addition we and our partner Kaufland decided that the Full Metal Bags will be made out of organic cotton from now on. We also want to produce much less unnecessary garbage than before and try to put only those things into the Full Metal Bag that will give you a real value for your stay at Wacken Open Air.
Last year we decided to no longer produce the fridge magnets for the very same reasons. These (and also the patches) were found thrown away by many visitors year after year. But at the same time many of you gave us the indication, that these little gifts are their highlight of the Full Metal Bag for some people.
So in the interest of sustainability we would like to offer W:O:A 2020 fridge magnets and patches for cost price at the festival site and also try to avoid any over production. To get a first feel on how many will have to be produced, we’d like to invite you to join our little survey. Thanks for helping us!
