[GreenYes] Re: Zero Waste Music Festivals?


Bob -

I couldn't find the exact link I was hoping for, but here is the link
to the Burning Man festival in Nevada. A huge Annual Festival that
tries really hard to get to zero waste - they refer to it as MOOP -
Matter Out Of Place - Great Concept. Here are some links:

Here is a check list of what NOT to bring (for campers):

How to reduce your trash:

Create lighter, better smelling trash:

Create a "Recycle Camp"

http://www.burningman.com/on_the_playa/environment_concerns/
recycle_camp.html

But if you search the site for MOOP you may find better listings on
camping ideas. Basically the more you know, the less you need. All
prior planning will pay off with less waste. As much upfront
communication as possible. Issue a challenge to campers to leave no
trace (http://www.burningman.com/on_the_playa/environment_concerns/
lnt_outdoor.html) and pack out what they pack in.

You might also contact the Reggae on the River folks up in Humboldt.
They even have a permit for their annual food scraps composting...
