Jul 3, 2013 —  Regardless of one’s political ideology, it’s difficult to disagree with some simple “green” ideals. For example, how can anyone dispute that eating organic food is better for you in the long run than consuming processed grub?

It would be ludicrous to suggest that some of Europe’s best eco-friendly festivals aren’t just as fun – if not more so – than their non-green counterparts. Paris’s We Love Green Festival in September serves as proof. The three-day music fest is packed with eye-opening art exhibitions, and inventions created and sponsored by local environmental associations.

Meanwhile in Barcelona, April’s La Fira per la Terra boasts a slew of sweet live music performances while at the same time teaching attendees about the benefits of locally-produced, nature-friendly goods. Guests of this Spanish soiree chow down on tasty health food and wash it down with refreshing alcoholic and non-alcoholic refreshments.

Similarly, the Dutch Raw Food Festival in Amsterdam covers all aspects of natural living and holistic health with an emphasis on vegan, organic, and raw cuisine. While dining on scrumptious dishes, attendees check out film screenings, do yoga, and watch food prep demos.

Everyone is entitled to live his or her life the way they choose. But it doesn't hurt to look for a little green inspiration at some of Europe's best nature-loving events.
