LEAVE NO FOOTPRINT
The BPM Festival and Lamerced Recreativa ask you to help us make a difference.
Our goal is to keep the beaches clean and create environmental awareness as we dance under the sun and stars.
Look for our Green Team, in the parties and at the beach.
If everybody lends a hand, our environmental impact can be less, and keep Playa beautiful.
BPM and Lamerced Recreativa join forces in an effort to bring collective awareness of social and environmental responsibility.
- Environmental Responsibility.
- Generating a minimal environmental impact over the course of the 10 days of the festival, and for our fans to bring this awareness home.
- Respect for our environment, which in turn serves as respect for our dance floors.
HOW DO WE ACHIEVE THIS?
Strategized programs of cleaning, installations of “Green Team Stations” in our venues, and separation of waste and recyclables.
SOCIAL ACTION AND LOCAL RESPONSIBILITY
For the BPM Green Team, social actions are central to survival of this project. More than 70 jobs are created for locals of the greater area of the Playa Del Carmen community. Most of these jobs are filled by women, with experience in waste management and control.
A portion of the recyclables which are collected through the efforts of the BPM Green team are then donated to local communities to be reused.
BPM GREEN TEAM 2014
With 50,000 attendees we collected more than 120 tons of non-recyclable waste.
At the same time, we collected more than 3,810 kg. of recyclables.
BPM GREEN TEAM 2015
With 60,000 attendees we collected more than 185 tons of non-recyclable waste.
And collected more than 4,755 kg. of recyclables.
Recyclables include : aluminum, PET and glass. All of these items are delivered to Maremex S.A de C.V for disposal and reuse. Maremex is the government sponsored recycling program in Playa Del Carmen.
BPM GREEN TEAM GOAL
The BPM Green Team aims to become a fully sustainable festival. To decrease our environmental impact more year after year, and for our guest to lend a hand in making this happen.
