About Bsplash

We bring together events in Ibiza with local social
and environmental initiatives.

Each purchase you make on our site gives something back to the island by donating a percentage directly to a local non-profit project without any additional cost to you.

Our objective is to promote sustainable development through digital technology, art and music.

We want to do our share in helping fight some of the challenges Ibiza faces as it continues to grow in numbers (but not in space). We want to help preserve the beauty of this magical place.

And now you can too!

Our vision

We want to instigate a global movement in which art and music promote a more united and sustainable world. We believe Ibiza can become a role model in a new way by linking social and environmental sustainability with leisure and fun.

Why we exist

Ibiza receives more and more people every year and that’s really exciting. But it also has an enormous impact on the island’s environment and society, the management of which is currently unsustainable and has no long-term vision. We want people to understand how to reduce each individual’s footprint and how to really care about the island.

Some facts about Ibiza:

  • 40% of Posidonia has disappeared in recent decades. (The growth of this plant is so slow that it takes up to 4 centuries to recover).
  • The rate of tourists per number of residents has reached one of the highest rates in the world, reaching nearly 26 tourists per inhabitant in 2016.
  • 82% of the average salary is spent on property rentals. (The EU establishes that a household is overburdened when these costs exceed 40% of the available income).
  • Urbanisation of the coastline has suffered an increase of more than 60% between 1990 and 2012.
  • The surface of protected areas has decreased 57%.
  • The consumption of renewable energy represents less than 1% on an island that enjoys more than 300 days of sunshine a year. According to Europe’s 2020 climate and energy package, this number should reach 20% in less than 2 years.
  • Groundwater resources represent 90% of the water consumed on the island. 65.2% of the aquifers are overexploited. 89% are in a critical situation. (10 out of the 16 aquifers on the island are in a poor quantitative state).
