What is a Low Impact and Minimum Waste Event?

Following a similar framework to Leave No Trace camping, the Solar Cook-Off and Music Festival is aiming to reduce waste and limit the impact the festival has on the land and surrounding environment by by eliminating single-use plastic items, using reusable silverware, composting food waste, and encouraging participants to come prepared to minimize their footprint on the campground and surrounding area. 

The Sierra Institute for Community and Environment aims to support the accountability of festival culture that is committed to partying responsibly and SUSTAINABLY!

Festival Measure to Reduce Waste​
  • Vendors provide compostable kitchenware or use the provided reusable silverware

  • A dishwashing station will be staffed with volunteers

  • Volunteers will oversee waste management

  • Compostable material will go to local farms and gardens
