Adam Gardner on REVERB and Green Touring

How Do You Green The Energy Guzzling Rock Tour?

April 22, 2013 - Happy Earth Day! While on tour with his band Guster, Adam Gardner noticed that a lot of energy was being consumed, particularly in getting bands and fans together for a show.

His wife, Laura Sullivan is an ecologist, and was nudging him at home to become more green. Gardner started to wonder whether anything could really be done for life on the road, and the result was REVERB, a company dedicated to reducing touring band’s carbon footprints. And it is a lot more than just talking about the problem. Hear today what real solutions have been put in place by people like The Dave Matthews Band, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Phish and others.

LISTEN:You can LISTEN to the session and find out more on WorldCafe.NPR.org.
