Mission

WE WANT YOU to Leave It Better, Leave It Beautiful!


Leave the event feeling positively impacted. Leave the event feeling empowered and connected to your community. Leave the event with tools to pass it on and teach others…
…and before you leave, leave the land behind better and more beautiful than you found it. This is our request to you as an integral part of our community.


We take our love for the environment further than a Leave No Trace policy. By acting as stewards for nature, we are constantly striving to find ways to create a healthier and more beautiful landscape for all to enjoy. PLEASE make a conscious effort to keep the land clean, and find ways to take it one step further to leave a positive trace of our time together.


• Through our purchasing choices, green vendor policies, and renewable energy supplier sourcing, we are constantly striving to push the industry standard a step forward

• From Day 1 we have been leading the green festival standard by introducing innovative policies such as free filtered water and creating stages and art from rapidly renewable and reused materials, such as bamboo, rattan, and trash!

• L.I.B. stands for both the environment and the people. We care about the health and happiness of our community. Our greening efforts in 2011 are focused on inspiring empowered action through simple Do-It-Yourself projects that immediately provide participants with know-how and tools to become more self-sustainable in their lives, and foster a deeper and more intimate connection to nature.

• Every year we use as much renewable energy as possible.  We offset 100% of our CO2 emissions, including transportation, with certified carbon offsets.  In 2011, proceeds of our carbon offset purchases went toward the Big River/Salmon Creek Forests in Mendocino County, California. They helped the Redwoods, Douglas Firs, and endangered Coho salmon. For more information on this project: http://www.carbonneutral.com/project-portfolio/big-riversalmon-creek-forests/


For just $3 you can offset your travel to the festival, while also receiving tons of goodies!  You get a discount on a steel LIB water bottle, veggie seeds and a compostable pot to take our planting practices home from LIB, and for the first time ever a Limited Edition LIB sticker! The offset purchase options are available at ticket purchase.
