Composting toilets at BOOM Festival, Portugal

The BOOM Festival is a biennial festival of independent culture and artistic expression produced since 1997. In 2010 the weeklong event was attended by 25.000 people from 75 countries.

BOOM has a extraordinary Environmental Program. It aims to develop answers to the environmental challenges of human communities in three different fields of action: 1) contact with nature, 2) technologies and 3) artistic awareness.



In 2006 the festival launched a pioneer project dealing with toilets without chemicals. In 2008 already 80% of the toilets were composting toilets and in 2010 the total of 100% of toilets were not using any water or chemicals anymore.
