In addition to many other conservation efforts, Reverb ensures that tour buses use biodiesel and all other energy usage at concerts is offset with green tags for wind energy.
“Musicians and fans are definitely becoming more aware of environmental issues and renewable energy,” said Lauren Sullivan, co-founder of Reverb, speaking on RenewableEnergyAccess.com’s Inside Renewable Energy podcast. Reverb is an organization that coordinates green touring. “We have worked with some great bands who are really trying to lessen the impact of their concerts,” she said.
