Music tours are going green across the nation; and one of the largest — the Vans Warped Tour, is turning up the volume on its earth-friendly initiatives. This is from their latest press release,

“The tour will continue to implement and develop its “Warped Eco Initiatives” (WEI), including: biodiesel fuel for touring trucks and buses, environmentally friendly catering for bands and crew courtesy of Tada Catering and a solar-powered sound system. In 2007, Warped will also team with Philippe Cousteau’s environmental organization Earth Echo International, which “empowers individuals to take action to sustain and enhance our water planet.” [Tour founder and producer, Kevin] Lyman and the Vans Warped Tour strive to develop multiple ways to help the environment and create awareness through action.”

In addition to the above, the tour organizers will also be giving VIP Backstage Passes to blood donors. The organization Music Saving Lives will be running several blood drives in the weeks and days before the tour kicks off. Each participant will receive a one-day pass at the tour stop of their choice.  Cool, right?

THIS WEEK IN THE VEGANVERSE III

No one wants to date vegans, meat is getting the mayo treatment, and Finland get’s the first taste of new vegan fast food AGAIN.
