We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.
The green mission of Crosstown Rebels
All of us have seen the devastating impact of human action on this planet. As an event industry we have reached the point of no return. We are creating an imminent effect on this planet with any event we organise. It is time to do the necessary. It is time to avoid our experience having a negative impact. We must take an active stand to inform and inspire our crowd.
In the sections below you can discover the initiatives we have been implementing since 2018 to turn Day Zero into a sustainable event - and what you can do when you join us.
Since the implementation of our sustainability team in 2018 and Crosstown Consciousness in 2020, we have been working in both Day Zero locations: Tulum, Mexico and Masada, Israel. Both locations are extraordinary.
In TULUM we focus on the preservation of the jungle, collaboration with local sustainability initiatives, waste control and minimisation, onsite recycling plus tracking of the full recycling process and post-production restoration. From 2022 onwards we are teaming up with Petgas to transform plastic into fuel. We will start to use this fuel for our generators.
In MASADA we are implementing a full team that works all year on improving the options in Israel to minimise single-use plastic, guarantee recycling, involve and inspire the crowd and team up with foundations in order to preserve the Dead Sea.
PLASTIC & THE PEOPLE
A problem we are confronted with on a daily basis is single-use-plastic and its fate in the jungle, the ocean and in nature. Our main goals are to refuse, reduce, recover and return.
the plastic that you don’t need or find alternatives

waste where possible. We are here to find alternatives for the things that have always been plastic.
all the things that will never disappear if we don’t. We are all entering an extraordinary piece of land. Everything we bring in, we must take out.
Crowd responsibility. You are all asked to leave no trace.
the trash that we create to a disposal that can actually take care of it. Our team is now setting up the transport of trash out of the jungle. We can’t let it end up in landfill.

THE PEOPLE & POSSIBILITIES
Soon we will gather with many incredible human beings at Day Zero. Soon we will enjoy an experience together that our team has been working on for months. Soon we will step foot on a piece of land that needs love and care.
We ask all of you to be a little bit more cautious, to be a little bit more caring and to consider that we all should leave no trace. Here are some of our solutions:
- Set Up
- Use Bio
Join the team! Sustainable solutions are always welcome at Crosstown Consciousness.
