Introduction
As most of you already know, Burning Man is more than a festival. It's a family, a community, a support network, a growth incubator. In spirit of Leaving No Trace on playa and on our planet, the theme camp IDEATE wants to collect your compost this year during the Burn and keep it from rotting in our landfills.


Opportunity
This year an excess of 70,000 burners will meet, build a city from scratch, like a mirage erected in the middle of Black Rock Desert, and make it home for a week. With lots of people comes lots of waste, and large amounts of compostable matter such as food scraps and soiled paper are wasted to landfill, creating copious amounts of unwanted CO2 (the stuff that harms our atmosphere).

The Solution
In the spirit of Burning Man, IDEATE is committed to sustainability. For the third year in a row, IDEATE, in collaboration with like-minded Burning Man camps, is eager to provide a Composting Initiative to the entire playa. A comprehensive program including compost awareness, hands-on education, and the facilities to collect pure compostable matter, placed directly into the funnel of regenerative farming.

How It Works
We are providing not one, but THREE 30 cubic yard Compostainers (6,000 gallon dumpster) on playa this year. We will also be setting up daily compost drop off times with sorting stations supervised by our trained compost teams!

If you'd like to bring us your compost and/or volunteer for a compost shift REGISTER HERE


Impact
With the collaboration of small, medium, and large sustainability friendly camps, we aim to provide compost awareness to SIX TIMES as many burners as 216. We estimate a reduction of 650,000 lbs of greenhouse gases. Our long term plan is to collect all compost from everyone at Burning Man.

Target Contribution
In order to cover the cost of the program, the target contribution is set at [a low fee] per person. We do not require camps to pay in order to participate. However, your support will be greatly appreciated and your impact will ripple out into the world.
