A trusted source has disclosed to me a startling truth:
In order to discourage the unnecessary use and subsequent disposal of plastic bottles, the fantastic folks who’ve organized the upcoming Electric Forest Festival — to be held at the Double JJ Ranch Resort, near Rothbury, Michigan, June 30 through July 3 — have arranged for there to be free water refill stations strategically positioned throughout the grounds.
We’re talking free water here folks!
Have you ever heard of a production team sacrificing extractable cash in the name of lessening the environmental impact of an event?
You’re telling me I can carry my CamelBak and for once put proper use to it? What next, compost bins in the campgrounds? Hah haha…
O wait, really? They’re collecting compost, too? In addition to providing recycle bins, really? Well shucks, if they’re going to make it that easy to be eco-friendly, I suppose I won’t go out of my way to litter — this time…
But come on, honestly, this is a music and arts festival isn’t it? We’re here to hippie-dance, eat LSD & MDMA then tent-hop having carnal, patchouli-scented, unprotected relations with every sexy dread-headed body we so clearly share profound sexual karma with, aren’t we?
I mean, I’m all for saving the planet and feeding the hungry, but there’s a time and place for that, isn’t there?
There is — and the time is now.
Conscious Alliance will be hosting an “Art That Feeds” food drive at the festival, providing a limited edition 3-d poster to every attendee who donates 20 non-perishable food items (please note: Ramen Noodles will not be accepted for the poster; organic, health-conscious foods are encouraged). These contributions will be distributed to local Michigan food pantries.
Well fine, I’ll help, as long as I get a sweet poster out of it…
