With this year’s slogan “Our glasses are not to be thrown away”, the Motovun Film Festival will encourage caterers to throw out glasses, straws and plastic spoons during the event. Those who join the action will be marked with a PLASTIC FREE certificate, and visitors will be invited to support such caterers. Disposable glasses that have been thrown away so far will be replaced by reusable glasses, which visitors will be able to return with a refund or keep as a souvenir. Their representatives will give a lecture In plastic shackles u Thursday, July 25 at 18:30 p.m. at the campground. It will discuss the harmful effects of plastics and especially microplastics on the environment and life in general, the extent of pollution with all future implications, and will offer solutions to prevent further pollution, as well as how each individual can actively participate in promoting rational and environmentally conscious use of plastic. Then, activist Marko Capek will use his own example to show how to completely eliminate plastic from his life, and he will also hold a workshop on making harmless deodorants and sun cubes.

The plastic cups that were used every day could be used to build a tower higher than the Motovun hill, which is located at a considerable 277 meters above sea level.
