We're committed to constantly improving Splore in all areas and minimising our impact on the environment is no exception.
Sustainability is at the heart of everything we do, from eliminating single use cups and water bottles, introducing reusable serve-ware for our food and working closely with Tapapakanga’s iwi, Ngāti Paoa and Ngāti Whanaunga. Splore is a member of the Sustainable Business Network and is proud to be the first New Zealand festival to win the international ‘A Greener Festival Award’ for our sustainability initiatives.
Thanks to the Splorers (that's you) we create a festival environment where we rewrite the rules and explore a better, and more exciting, way of living.
Honour the whenua
It is a privilege to party on this sacred whenua, Tapapakanga. We are very thankful to the tangata whenua, Ngāti Paoa and Ngāti Whanaunga, and their ancestors - the ancient occupants of this beautiful place. They give us their blessing to be here. Please be kaitiaki (caregivers) and take pride in being here as Splore community.
Ko Papatuanuku te whaea o te whenua.
Papatuanuku is the earth mother.
