Guster is all set to headline Earthfest in Boston on May 26. During the press conference announcing this, Guster showed up and talked a little about the environment and what they have been doing about it. The combo of music & the environment is right up Guster’s alley, as Adam Gardner & his wife Lauren Sullivan are the founders of Reverb.
Adam went on to say that they’ve been “putting biodiesel in our tour buses” and “offsetting every show. Just through these two things for the past 12 months, we’ve reduced our carbon footprint by 2100 tons of CO2, equivalent to not driving 4.5 million miles.” Fans have offset an additional 300,000 miles of “not” driving through their purchases of “Kiss Me, I’m Carbon Neutral” stickers at the Guster concerts.
Sounds like an awesome event. They are expecting over 100,000 people to this free concert. If you go, you’ll also see fellow biodiesel-er KT Tunstall, plus Mat Kearney, John Butler Trio, and more.
A cool looking organization, Save that Stuff, is also helping green the event. Sounds eco-licious.
