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:
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.
Whilst we expect all punters to treat everyone equally including all animals and plants, it’s important to know your surroundings to ensure no one disrupts these eco systems especially those that are listed as threatened species.
On the Sunday arvo our environmental team will be roaming through the campsites looking for the cleanest camp sites. The 10 cleanest camp sites will recieve 2 free tickets each and a golden pass to the best camping zone at earthcore 2017!
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.
To encourage responsible behaviour, at earthcore we will be taking a $100 deposit for any couch brought into the festival grounds. This deposit will be fully refundable at the end of the festival as you exit with your beloved relaxation device safely and securely stowed away for transit back home.
We 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.
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.
