We’re helping Berlin go Eco-Green
St. Patrick’s Festival Berlin are contributing €1 of all ticket sales and 5% of sponsorship raised to two Berlin organizations that promote initiatives focusing on recycling, sustainability and preventing climate change. All of which help the city and the planet stay cool and green - which also happens to be what being Irish is all about!
The partnership will fund a new permanent Binee collection point for electrical waste in Berlin, helping Germany reach the 2019 EU target of 65% collection of electrical waste. Currently, only 45% of appliances are recycled in Germany, with the majority of waste ending up in landfill sites.
