One of the two things that you can buy at Burning Man is ice and coffee.
With ice being quiet the commodity, you'll soon find the importance of a cooler that really works in the desert heat and has proven ice retention.
An essential item that I encourage all burners to consider investing in, is a cooler that is both built to last and holds a lifetime warranty.
Grizzly Coolers are one of my favorites because they are Made in the Iowa, created with environmentally friendly pressure-injected insulation, and come in beautiful colors like this seafoam green.
One of my absolute favorite quotes from Vivienne Westwood that I constantly remind myself is 'Buy less, choose well.' To incorporate this principle into my burn, I choose minimalism by creating a capsule wardrobe for burning man. A capsule collection normally consists of basics, that can be worn different ways with different accessories.
A beautiful piece that can be styled many different ways, is the ethically made one piece silver swimsuit HER. from The LIDO designed by Brooke Ulrich. Buying a 'base' piece for your burning man capsule wardrobe that you can reuse and wear in 'the real world,' is an important part of reducing your waste after the burn.
I once heard that if you feel thirsty, you are already dehydrated. So one of my favorite accessories on the playa to help stay hydrated is a fun festival hydration pack, like this shiny pink one from Dan Pak.
My favorite aspect of Dan Pak is not the obvious (which obviously is how cute festival hydration packs are), however I love that they also give a portion of their profits to charity. There is nothing better then seeing a company be responsible and give back.
This retro raver pink Dan Pak is a bit bigger than the mini Dan Pak and holds 2 liters (equivalent to 4 water bottles).

With the most sustainable and eco aspect of Burning Man being no MOOP, one essential item that every Black Rock City citizen needs is a utility belt.
I love Ornate Reverie and how many pockets & pouches their handmade utility belts have. There is literally room for all the little things (like your ID, snacks, trash, phone) you might need while exploring the playa.
