Sony BBC Earth partners with ‘Mood Indigo’

MUMBAI: Sony BBC Earth, post its partnership with Lil Flea in early December 2019 to celebrate everything ‘Earth’, has partnered with Asia’s largest college cultural festival ‘Mood Indigo’ to enable the 4-day gala event for becoming India’s first zero waste college festival. This was a pioneering step by the leading college festival which sees a crowd of over 143K people each year and helping it achieve this incredible feat, was India’s most loved factual entertainment channel - Sony BBC Earth.

Sony BBC Earth, from 26 – 29 December, as the ‘Earth Partner’ urged the attendees to responsibly dispose the waste and be more aware of their plastic footprint and its long-lasting impact. Festival goers were confronted with eye-opening and thought-provoking facts, across the campus, like ‘it takes 450 years for a plastic bottle to decompose’ and ‘by 2050, there will be more plastic in the ocean than fishes’ to make visitors think about their own plastic footprint and inspire a positive behavioral change. Eventually, 4500 kgs of waste collected was responsibly managed by ‘Mood Indigo’ and Sony BBC Earth, making it India’s first zero waste college festival.

Rooted in the philosophy of ‘Feel Alive’, Sony BBC Earth has stuck to its brand promise of bringing forth grand visual spectacle, positive insightful storytelling and a new perspective to knowledge and entertainment. Extending this philosophy on-ground by forging partnerships with various institutions and festivals, the channel is hoping to inspire thought-provoking conversations and influence people to be more ‘Earth’ conscious.
