Keeping it Green
The Gaia Festival is committed to making as small a footprint as possible. These are some of the ways we will be good stewards of the festival site:
No one time use plastic bottles
U.S. Pure Water will be providing free drinking water, filtered on–site, with refill stations conveniently located throughout the festival site. Please bring a refillable container or purchase one of our reusable stainless steel bottles to break the plastic bottle habit. There will be no plastic one time use bottles sold on site. Help move The GAIA Festival towards our goal of zero–waste.
The Gaia Festival's Repsycology Crew is dedicated to ensuring that as much of the waste stream as is possible will be recycled on site. This team will be busy throughout the event and will stay for a week afterwards to sort through all the trash, making sure that all items are properly recycled and or composted. Please help them by separating all recyclables and compostables out of your waste before depositing in our garbage cans.
Reusable dinnerware, use ours or bring your own
This festival runs on biodiesel
Black Oak Ranch and the Gaia Festival are pleased to announce that our festival runs on locally produced biodiesel fuel in all our generators. The biodiesel we use is made from recycled fryer grease, produced right here in Mendocino County, by Yokayo Biofuel of Ukiah.
We use soy-based inks & recycled paper
The Gaia Festival prints all it's flyers and posters on recycled paper using soy based inks. We also recycle all office material when it cannot be reused.
We encourage carpooling
Please support the festival by carpooling.
We are a combination of two pedicab businesses: Davis Pedicab from Davis, CA and Hub Tours from Napa, CA. Together, we are a mobile pedicab unit! We look forward to taking you and your crew to and from the camping area and the music venues! Find us at our campground next to fire camp, designated pick-up/drop-off areas, or call in for a pickup!
Pedicabs are a human powered transit option. They are operated 100% by muscle and each operator works for tips only...there is no rate. It is up to the passenger to pay what they think is fair which often ranges between $5-25. This means that each operator will make sure you have a great experience and get you there as fast as possible!
