The FMG team, in partnership with RECYC-QUÉBEC, is committed to collaborating for a cleaner planet! A green team, made up of volunteers, makes you aware throughout the Festival of its eco-responsible policy:
- Sort your waste with several recycling and composting bins.
- Take your bikes and keep them in our free bike parking lots (at Jacques-Cartier entrance – 1089, Jacques-Cartier Street). Be sure to bring your padlock.
The Festival, in partnership with Irokko, is planting 50 trees to offset the greenhouse gas emissions of its hot air balloons and transportation of artists.
The Festival was a winner at the Outaouais Environmental Excellence Gala and recipient of the first Grand Vivat for eco-responsible Quebec events.
In 2020, the Gatineau Hot Air Balloon Festival won the Vivats Socio-Economic Engagement award for the event that stood out the most in Quebec in terms of its positive impact in the community.
The responsible practices of the FMG were also recognized during the Virtuoses 2020 competition organized by Enviro Éduc-Action. An environmental excellence competition aimed at rewarding and promoting sustainable development initiatives in the Outaouais.
