Precycling is the simple principle of thinking more carefully about the products you buy, and the packaging they come in.
If you precycle, you;
- Avoid products with excess or over-sized packaging
- Buy products that will last
- Re-use previous purchases as much as possible.
- Consider what you are bringing to the festival and strip it back to the bare essentials.
- Put the food you are bringing to Splore into reusable containers and recycle any packaging at home.
Most importantly take what you bring into Splore home with you at the end.
SPLORE are saving the death of a potential 55,000 one-use cups with these ultra groovy GLOBLET cups, they are all the rage at festivals in Australia and Europe and festivals like Burning Man have always been BYO vessel!
Purchase 1 x reusable polypropylene-drinking vessel (called a Globelet) for $2 and use it for the whole festival at every bar. This dramatically assists them in achieving a zero waste festival each with their own funky custom designs making them a real piece of festival memorabilia that will last for YEARS!
!!!!CAR POOL-CAR POOL!!! (PARKING PASS)
Every vehicle arriving at Splore will need to have a PARKING PASS. The PARKING PASS must be pre-purchased online through ITICKET prior to the event. It costs $50.00 per vehicle. This will be FULLY REFUNDED to the purchaser of the PARKING PASS when you arrive with 3 or more people in your vehicle- giving you Free Parking.
Vehicles that arrive with fewer than three people will not have the PARKING PASS refunded. That’s right! Parking at Splore will be absolutely free for vehicles arriving with 3 or more passengers (this includes children).
1/ We must reduce the number of vehicles coming on site by a minimum of 20%.
2/ The upside to fewer cars is less congestion, shorter queues for processing at the gate and a significantly reduced carbon footprint. All good!
3/ encouraging carpooling, ride sharing and using dedicated public transport, which will significantly reduce vehicles coming to site.
