We take environmental sustainability and leave no trace very seriously. We believe that festivals like earthcore must help educate with knowledge and implement change in the way we care for the environment !

At earthcore we have an extensive environmental and sustainability program that continues to improve every year. This year’s ground breaking environmental, recycling and waste reduction initiatives are:

eco transport

Save the hassle and the environment by travelling to earthcore via environmentally sustainable transport. Help us reduce the carbon footprint of earthcore by travelling in large groups, public transport & other eco friendly ways.

grab your mates butts for free drinks

What on earth is this you ask ? The concept is simple, collect a can full of cigarette butts, bring them to the bar and you will be rewarded with one free drink for your efforts.

iso20121 international sustainability initiative

isoearthcore has a goal of achieving certification to ISO20121 and developed the earthcore Sustainability Policy back in 2012 as an initial step towards achieving this goal.

leave no trace

Leave No Trace is about rubbish, sure, but it’s more than that; it’s a philosophy that’s changing the way people approach the environment, party culture & especially festivals. Leave No Trace applies to everyone from the crew to the punters.

recycling and waste reduction

recyclingWe have introduced our strongest focus on recycling than ever before and encourage punters to follow our lead. We’ve covered all the bases from paper, plastic, metal, cigarette butt and compost recycling to donation bins to charities.

stomp the seeds

Before you arrive at earthcore, we will sow grass seeds under the dancefloors. As you stomp away over the duration of the festival you will be planting the seeds to replenish any deterioration of grass caused by all the dancing & wild antics.


As pioneers of Australia’s outdoor festival scene, we know that positive social, environmental and community outcomes are only achieved through open communication, collaboration and responsible management.
