The greenest red carpet of the Berlinale or Berlin Film Festival
WELCOME TO THE GREENEST EVER RED CARPET AT INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL BERLIN
2,430 square meters of carpet made from 100% recycled nylon, including 1.6 tonnes of marine garbage - this year's red carpet, on which the stars stroll during the Berlinale, is all about sustainability. The carpet, which is laid out in front of the main venues Berlinale Palace, Friedrichstadt Palace and Zoo Palace, consists of recycled fishing nets as well as worn carpets and rejected defective productions. This is the greenest red carpet ever used at the Berlinale.
There will be 2,430 square meters of carpet that were made from 1.6 tons of marine waste at this year’s Berlinale events. The stars will be strolling and it is all about sustainability.
Berlinale festival has partnered up with Engagement Global on Project # 17 and took a commitment to do something about the environmental and marine waste. The red carpet on which the Berlinale festival will take place from 7 to 17 February 2019 is actually green!..
The carpets in front of the main venues - Berlinale Palace, Friedrichstadt Palace and Zoo Palace - consist of recycled fishing nets as well as worn carpets and decommissioned ones from production errors. This is the greenest red carpet ever to be used at the Berlinale.
It is clear that marine protection and sustainability are not just political tasks. Every single person can contribute - be it plastic packaging to avoid or collect garbage at the beach. The greenest red carpet of all time carries this message into the everyday life of the people and demands not only film friends to do something about the plastic garbage, but everyone.
The protection of the seas is just one of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals of theUnited Nations, which should be realized by the year 2030. The project #17Goals of Engagement Global wants to use this action at the Berlinale to show how the 17 goals can be concrete and effective.
