I’m a big Vienna Teng fan. If you don’t know who she is or what her music is like, check out her site and listen to her songs. She’s done some beautiful, enchanting music, and I should stop right here before I sound too obsessed.

Anyway, it looks like she’s going on tour this year, called the Green Caravan Tour. Not only is she working with Habitat For Humanity, but the tour itself aims to be carbon neutral. They sell eco-friendly merchandise, offset all flights with Native Energy, buy local organic food, and bike instead of driving. Vienna, who admits to having been influenced by An Inconvenient Truth, has this to say about her interest in working for the environment:

I’ve always wanted to do more than just play shows and promote myself on tour; music can feel like a dangerously self-important endeavor, given the myriad other ways a person with a college education can be useful to the world. If I’m going to crisscross the country year after year, burning fuel and accepting people’s money and goodwill, I figure I should give back more than just songs.

Great to hear that, Vienna. Now I’m a bigger fan, if that was even possible.

In other news, Megan just wrote about The Great Turtle Race earlier, and I figured it’s also worth mentioning that Mark Hoppus of Blink 182 was rooting for a turtle in his blog.
