Metal 4 Nature – Save Your Holy Land
This year we are caring about the reduction of the pollution during the Wacken Open Air again. According to the motto “Metal 4 Nature” different projects will be implemented to protect the nature.
In your Full:Metal:Bag there is a trash bag and our “Trash-Mobiles” (vehicles) will patrol on the campsite to gather your trash bags and they will also supply you with new ones. Should there be no “Trash-Mobile” around, you can bring your trash bags to the trash stations at the shower camps S1-S5.
The voluntary workers of the Wacken Foundation will drive around on the campsite with cargo trikes. Their goal is to collect your deposit. Your PET-bottles and cans are what they are looking for. All this is for good causes, since the income will be split between Viva Con Aqua and the Wacken Foundation, who will use them for their non-profit projects. Viva Con Agua de St. Pauli, a organization which engages for drinking water supply in developing countries, will again collect festival cups in the infield , at the Wacken Plaza and Wacken Center. The income from this deposit will also be shared between Viva Con Aqua and the Wacken Foundation.
In order to minimize injury risk, glass bottles are forbidden on the whole festival site! But there is a service being offered where you can decant your glass bottle content into a fancy PET-bottle. This can be done at the supermarkets on the visitor road.
An overdimensional beer can can again be visited in the Wacken Foundation Camp (Pos. # 27). It is the sleeping can – a prototype which soon could be your sleeping booth on festivals. The can has a bedroom and a lounge and could be equipped with solar battery panels, which provides you with light and power, so you can be fully independent from the power supply.
So do your little part to help us protecting the environment!
