The novelty of the 13th year of the beach is the green policy. As organisers state on the official website, the beach produced a lot of plastic last year – 250,000 single-use plastic cups, 70,000 plastic straws, 15,000 PET bottles and 10 tons of construction waste.

This year, all drinks will be served in plastic cups on deposit created from recycled plastics. The food will be sold in compostable dishes, with the composter located in the compound.
