Do you want to help make FTA an eco-friendly event?

Here are a few ideas:  

Travel by active or public transportation. Metro and Bixi stations near Festival venues are indicated on the area map for each one. Are you visiting from outside the city? Travel with the carpooling services Poparide and Amigoexpress or the Quebec-based car-sharing platform MonLift, which promises to plant a tree for every trip, and offers a safe Women-only option! You can also take advantage of eco-friendly taxi services Téo Taxi and Véco.



Opt for vegan or vegetarian dishes, which have a smaller carbon footprint. Many such options are available at our Headquarters! Take advantage of our selection of local drinks and support our caterer, who prioritizes local, organic, and seasonal products.



Use the recycling facilities available and limit the use of disposable products. We encourage you to separate recyclable, compostable, and refundable items. If you see waste on the ground, please dispose of it in the appropriate bin.



Bring a reusable water bottle so you can fill it up at one of our water fountains. Don’t have one? Then ask for an Ecocup at our Quartier général bar – it’s free!



Our printed materials are certified by the FSC (Forest Stewardship Council). Each year, the Festival seeks to print fewer copies of the official program by diversifying its communication strategies. We also reuse or repurpose signage. Share the Festival’s promotional tools with your friends and recycle them once you have finished using them.



Support local economy by visiting stores and restaurants in the vicinity of Festival venues. Consult our suggestions near the venues where shows are held.



Avoid printing out your tickets and show them on your smartphone instead when entering the venue.




Every year, FTA offsets all the carbon emissions generated by transportation during the event, which includes the mobility of our employees, artists and collaborators, as well as the annual trips of the programming team. We invite you to do the same and make a donation to the Festival’s Eco-Responsible Fund. A donation of $2 to $5 is suggested to offset the impact of your participation in the Festival.
