The environment and Burning Man – consider your impact is a series of blog posts on the Burning Man Journal which asks you to consider just that. Notable-entries-that-can-potentially-be-applied-Kiwiburn include:
- where do you take your trash after the Burn?
- A crash course in MOOP
- Kneecap that impact: how much your journey across the earth, costs the earth
- And finally, be a considerate free spirit, yo (respect thy neighbour)
If you were wondering where Burning Man was at after the environmental impact report, check out this sustainability roadmap.

Burning Seed is almost over! Our Top Secret Spies tell us that the Aussies have been derailed and Kiwis have taken over the crew. Karl is mostly stable, unlike the Temple which went up in smoke. By all accounts, it was a veritable zoo out there. The righteous Leave No Trace crew will be sticking around to clean up every sparkle and hopefully, no doo-doos in the woods (which, we’ve been told, has been one hell of an issue in previous years). Here’s a link to Facey if you want to stay updatey.
Missed out on a ticket to Kiwiburn? Worry no longer! Now you can go without actually going and bring the Principles to your party. It’s the offer of a life time! Read the original (American-centric) article here. Oh, you’d like some examples for not-party-times? Well! What about Wellington conversations (recently launched), connect with a local community garden, or your local timebank initiative (engage in Radical Self-Reliance and use Google for your local needs). Other things: volunteer, join a beach clean up, dance when everybody is watching, or not. Don’t know what the Principles are? Get learned!
Oh oh oh! PS! Looky Looky!
