We gather to grow and foster our conscious community, and as we set to do this, we also set to grow and foster our responsibility to our planet.
The team at Ecstatic Festival are committed to reducing the environmental impact of our gathering and with your help far beyond.
EDUCATE AND EMBRACE
Our clear ambition is to help educate our community and encourage you to embrace our sustainability ethos in your day to day lives.
Eco tours will run daily, demonstrating the journey krishna valley has undertaken to reduce its impact on our planet. This is a rare opportunity to see off-grid living, waste reduction initiatives and conscientious living in one tour. So be sure to take up this mind and soul expanding tour.
AVOID ALL WASTE
As you get ready to get Ecstatic, take the opportunity to be mindful of what you bring and why. Here are some helpful do’s and don’ts to get you started:
Bring a reusable, refillable bottle for water. There’s running, fresh water on site to hydrate you to your heart’s content.
Bring reusable crockery, cutlery, material napkins and tea/coffee cups.
Eat at the beautiful hare kitchen. With nourishing meals and washable crockery, it’s a great choice and supports a community dedicated to sustainability.
Attend an Eco Tour during the festival.
Bring single use plastics, there are reusable alternatives to most day to day items. It’s good for the environment and saves you money in the long run.
