EcoEventos are an initiative of the EGF Group, supported by POSEUR – Operational Program for Sustainability and Efficiency in the Use of Resources.
In a pandemic year, there are no EcoEvents, but we recognize the organizations that in 2019 recycled the most and are already preparing for an even more sustainable 2021.
The three EcoEvents with the highest recycling values were, firstly, Queima das Fitas de Coimbra (26.5 tonnes), secondly the Vodafone Paredes de Coura Festival (20 tonnes), and thirdly the Walking Life Festival, in Crato (16.4 tons).
Last year, 377 EcoEvents were held, attended by 11.8 million people. In total, 517 tons of packaging were collected: 210 tons of plastic, metal and beverage packages; 172 tons of glass, and 135 tons of paper and cardboard.
