Loulé Carnaval to be more “environmentally-friendly”

Loulé’s Carnaval festivities are returning between March 3 and 5 with a focus on being more sustainable and environmentally-friendly than ever before.

Apart from the extravagant and satirical parades that bring thousands of people flocking, the event will see all bars and cafés using “100% biodegradable paper cups” which can be reused up to four or five times.
