…along with yogis that rock, Anusara’s John Friend, Shiva Rea, Annie Carpenter, and the lovely Elena Brower. In beautiful Lake Tahoe, California, July 24-26, Wanderlust Festival may be the first fest to successfully bring together truly hip music, greeat Yoga teachers and breathtaking surroundings.
And it gets better. Wanderlust focuses on “local sourcing, organics, reusability, carbon offsets, and sustainability, Wanderlust will be close to a “zero impact” event in year one.” They plan to reduce the amount of trash to the landfill by 80-90% by using a system of recycling, compostable, and trash bins. Wanderlust is bringing in local foods and beverages while also only buying organic, sustainably farmed foods. Their ban on Styrofoam and non-recyclable plastics will help to “avoid contamination and reach our 90% zero-waste goal.”
I’m pretty much drooling over the music and yogi lineup, the natural setting, and their environmentally-friendly efforts—and hoping that elephant is able to make it out (our editor, Waylon Lewis, is actively searching for video sponsors for our interviews with the above talent at Wanderlust—he was invited out by Wanderlust’s founders).
