One of the major tenets of Burning Man is to leave no trace. The community has nothing but mad respect for the environment, though I would argue it's a complicated relationship. Visitors fly from all over the world to visit Black Rock City and the art installations definitely have a huge carbon footprint of their own. But what makes this tenet work is how it transcends beyond the Playa. Burners gather trash year around and
use it in their art. For example, the sea of broken bikes featured above. So, at least things that would otherwise be landfill find a new home--a better home. Here are some of our favorite art pieces made from trash. Oh, and be sure to check out our Burning Man page to get the supplies you need for the Playa! A mobile Victorian house on its own is pretty darn cool. One can never have too much steam punk. But we love the reuse of materials. This gazebo is made from recycled bottle caps. Beer and soda caps help give this piece its beautiful texture and color. On top of that, you can never have enough shade on the Playa. A sunflower made from bottle caps and lids. The uses for this stuff is endless!
