Tame Impala have pledged to work with non-profit environmental organisation REVERB in an attempt to reduce the carbon footprint of their upcoming tour.
World tours can be dirty things but it appears as though Kevin Parker et al are working to reduce the amount of damage to the environment a tour can have.
The group revealed their partnership with REVERB on Facebook where they said they were working, “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.”
Other measures are also being planned in an attempt to reduce their impact on the environment. For example, unused catering food and hotel toiletries will be donated to local shelters. As well as encouraging recycling backstage and on tour buses, the band and crew will also be supplied with reusable water bottles.
Before each show, an Eco-Village will be in place that not only encourages patrons to learn more about what they do as an organisation but also provide water refill stations and other environmentally friendly perks.
It’s a big step from a huge act and should hopefully encourage those who can make changes to enact thems sooner rather than later.
