Green This Festival: "Osisko en lumiere"

By on August 12th, 2008

The Osisko Festival held in Rouyn-Noranda, Quebec, Canada this weekend was a great success with its best attendance ever. Featuring one of the 70’s biggest band “CCR” and Canadian Pop Rock Artist David Usher the crowd was going crazy.

We recently wrote about the Ottawa Bluesfest going green and I’m very happy to once again be able to talk to you about another green festival. Ok this festival may not be as big as the Ottawa Bluesfest but the organizers of these events sure are doing a great job at keeping an environmentally friendly aspect. Every few meters on the site you could find a container separating cans and bottles, recyclables and garbage. Also, volunteers were doing a very good job at keeping these containers usable by regularly emptying them.

These photos show volunteers sorting out the empty cans and loading them into the Pepsi truck.

Keep up the good work Osisko!
