There are many ways to experience this in action at the Festival with initiatives to minimise human impact on the festival site with 100% biodiesel generators, odour free composting toilets, grey water management, container deposit system, organic waste composting, reclaimed materials for decoration, certified organic food at the stalls, biodegradable cutlery, onsite bike couriers, natural ink printing and chemical free cleaning products.
