This is also an ideal environment to have an impact on the environment. And all festival visitors together could decrease the festival carbon footprint.

The Water Factory is a festival stand which provides the festival user hydration and cooling down. Festival visitors are able to bring their own bottle, and they receive a device to activate the taps.
