Recently we published an article showcasing the 7 greenest rockstars we could find. Of those 7, most had teamed up with non-profit organisation, Reverb, to reduce the carbon footprint of their tours.
Now, Tame Impala is doing the same. The band announced the news on their Facebook with the following message: “Tame Impala have teamed up with Reverb to reduce the environmental footprint of touring and help fight climate change. If you’re going to a show, visit the REVERB Eco-Village to take action for people and the planet.”
Tame Impala will join a long list of artists who are currently working with Reverb including: Maroon 5, Pink, Dave Mathews Band, Fleetwood Mac, The Lumineers, Billie Eilish, and The 1975.
The organisation takes care of greening the tour by arranging organic food for the band and tour staff, setting up recycling backstage and on the tour bus, and, to top it off, they will be providing the band with reusable water bottles.
Reverb will also set up an Eco Village at each Tame Impala concert to promote their campaign against climate change. The organisation hope to unite musicians, fans, venues, and festivals in the fight against environmental destruction. They plan to use donations to fund green energy initiatives and to lobby politicians to take action.
Tame Impala’s tour has already begun and tonight they will play The Forum in Inglewood, California. The tour is in support of the band’s new album, The Slow Rush.
