Green Team 2017 Application

Welcome to the 2017 Green Team application for Lightning in a Bottle’s Work Exchange Team. Please read the following information carefully and fill out the fields below to the best of your ability.

If you have already purchased a General Admission Festival Ticket, please do not apply. Tickets have already been shipped out. If you have not yet purchased your General Admission Festival Ticket, please proceed.

If you have been requested by a department manager to be a part of the team, please indicate them by name.

At the end of this application, you will be taken to a checkout to pay a $5 one-time non-refundable application processing fee through PayPal.

If you are accepted to be a part of our Green Team (our LIB 2017 Sustainability Work Exchange), you will receive an acceptance letter, along with a unique link to purchase your deposit ticket for $296.90 (including Eventbrite fees). Upon completion of your scheduled Green Team work exchange shifts, you will be refunded the full $296.90 (including Eventbrite fees) after the festival is over. This deposit MUST be paid by no later than May 1, 2017 at 10 pm to secure your spot on the team.

If you are accepted and need to cancel, you have until May 1, 2017 to do so in order to be refunded if you have already purchased your deposit ticket.


Make sure that when you come to work Green Team you come prepared. You are working a job that is dirty, hard physical labor, and can be dangerous if you are not paying attention. We want you to have fun while working and to know what you are getting into when you work or volunteer with us so please read the following and make sure you are ready for work when you show up for your shift.
· Bring closed toed shoes; there is broken glass and metal around the work site and wearing flip flops or going barefoot is not allowed period. If you don’t have the right shoes on you will be sent away to get the right gear.

· Wear clothes that can get dirty; most events it tends to be hot in the day and cold at night so bring both types of clothing. You want to have a least one pair of jeans for work and shorts for work. Aprons are a good idea to help keep juices and grime off your clothes and yourself.

· Gloves are required, goggles are recommended, and earplugs are a bonus; bring your own if you can because it’s always good to have your own pair.

· Headlamps are recommended and are required for Night shifts so please bring one if you have one, extra batteries or rechargeable headlamps are a good idea since you will go through at least 2 sets of batteries before the weekend ends. I highly recommend rechargeable headlamps; Petzl and Black Diamond both make a design that can plug into a micro-USB. No batteries to waste, less chemicals in landfill!

· The weather can be irregular; come prepared for the rain, the wind, the dust, the sun, and the cold. Hats, sunscreen, sun glasses, bandanas, leg warmers, rain coats, leggings, wool socks, etc. Anything you think you might need to help you be comfortable and to get the job done.

· MOOP Sticks are a great idea; pick up a good type online or at a hardware store.
