Every year, a 50.000 person festival serving single-use water bottles, cups, & straws burns as much CO2eq in just one day as a car driving around the Earth once.
A club or brick & mortar venue gets exponentially more foot traffic throughout the year, resulting in a significantly larger export of single-use waste.
With the same items, a 2,000 person capacity club burns the CO2 equivalent as the production of 12,000 beef burgers.
This environmental destruction is what La Machine, and a handful of courageous French clubs, have chosen to tackle & prevent. Through bold steps, La Machine du Moulin Rouge has now eliminated all single-use plastic water bottles from their clubs, and instead invite clubbers to bring their own bottles and refill at provided water stations.
Other clubs have joined the movement by committing to eliminate plastic water bottles within 2 years. Actively & collectively looking for the optimal solution for both the planet & their bottom line, these clubs are inviting others in the French community to follow their lead.
