Simple yet good ideas for a more sustainable festival!

Simple yet good ideas for a more sustainable festival!

Sometimes it looks like the amount of festivals keeps increasing every year. There is something to do every weekend and we also don’t stop in the winter season anymore. Great for the ones that like to go to a party, but it also has an enormous impact on the environment. More and more festival organisations and event management agencies are aware of this and take measures to make their event more sustainable. Usually this happens with some standard solutions, which has some but little impact on the amount of used energy or the amount of waste. Sometimes, the ideas are a lot more original yet simple and they improve the sustainability and increase the awareness.

Visiting: Familie van Rijk (Utrecht, The Netherlands)

Visiting Familie van Rijk from Utrecht, the Netherlands

Tucked away between some other small businesses and a Hema you find a small shop with a fresh look. The mint green building with the yellow sign stands out between the overall sober building in the street. On the window, it clearly shows what you can expect here. Lunchroom, Food shop and “Brood op de Zaak” (Bread for Businesses). Three different components that form the base of Familie van Rijk, with an extra area where you can buy special beers.

The lunchroom and the food shop are founded in 2016, in an old bakery at the Amsterdamsestraatweg in Utrecht (NL). The owner, Raymond & IJsbrand, have known each other for 15 years and have been working together for quite some time. They have been working with us (Bio Futura) for some years now, time to get to know these hard working guys a bit better.

Entomophagy: Thé alternative for meat?

Entomophagy: Thé alternative for meat? 

Scientists, specialists and a big part of social media have been telling us this for a while
now: It is necessary to eat less meat. For our own health and for the environment. Time
to take a look at an alternative: Insects!

Years ago, this idea was strange, exotic, scary or even repulsive: eating insects. These are
thoughts many people from Europe might still have when it comes to this subject, but times are
changing. There are already numerous catering companies and restaurants that experiment with
insects in their dishes. Also, a lot of edible insects can be purchased online with complementary
cookbooks of course.
