Burning Man is a Leave No Trace Event, and we seek not only to minimize our impact in the desert but also to understand our impact beyond its boundaries. The links to the right will guide you through preparing for your Burning Man experience, and will introduce some groups who are dedicated to addressing environmental issues in Black Rock City and beyond.

The Burning Man community is committed to creating a Black Rock City that makes the smallest environmental impact possible. Additionally, we are committed to take what we have learned Leaving No Trace on the playa and to extend that principle into the real world in our daily lives.


Burning Man's Board has adopted an official Environmental Statement, to which the Burning Man Project is committed.
