Bahidorá took place on February 20th, 2016 in Las Estacas, Morelos, Mexico. This festival is mainly for having fun with your friends for a weekend and enjoying good music. In this festival you have the option to camp but I wouldn’t recommend it if you are not a big fan of the heat because at Las Estacas the sun is very intense and your tent becomes an oven at 9am.
Nonetheless I’m not here to judge about the music nor the food they sell nor the camping conditions. I’m writing this blog entry to celebrate the fact that Bahidorá took the time to improve their impact on the planet. I’m a smoker and so are most of my friends so naturally we brought cigarettes to the concert and just as I was about to light my first cigarette I guy came towards me and gave me a little orange plastic sort of box. (Here is the picture because apparently I’m not very good at describing objects).
This little orange thing is made to store the ashes and the residue of your cigarettes so that you can reduce your carbon footprint and not damage the soil with the hundreds of chemicals that a cigarette contains. This is actually a great idea because smokers will be able to enjoy the pleasure of a cigarette with a clear conscience about damaging our planet. Personally I think it’s a great idea to make a portable ashtray because it is so simple yet no one has one or makes one. I have never seen a store where they sell these and I think it’s a great idea, it really is.
So congratulations to Bahidorá, the first sustainable music festival I’ve attended which I broadly recommend.
*If you know a place where they sell this portable ashtray please leave a comment, thank you.
