Global Cool has been a little quiet lately — but most orgs have probably been waiting for the waves of Live Earth to pass before announcing anything new.

Anyways, the group Maroon 5 announced plans last night at Hollywood’s House of Blues to team up with Global Cool and make their upcoming tour as eco-friendly as possible. From the article,

“The Grammy winning five-piece is set to launch their worldwide outing in Detroit on 29th September. Supported by special guests, The Hives, the LA based band will play a further 27 US cities before heading to the UK and Europe in November.

‘We can’t wait to get out on the road and perform in arenas,’ said frontman Adam Levine. ‘We’re also proud to be working with Global Cool to make the tour environmentally friendly. Our world is in a serious predicament right now, and we all need to play a role in reversing the catastrophic affects of global warming.’”

It’s no surprise that Adam is cozying up to Global Cool — the lead singer talked to us on the red carpet earlier this year about his green initiatives.  In addition to Global Cool’s work on the tour, the band will also be “donating $1 from every ticket purchased on the US leg of their tour to cover the cost of offsetting any remaining unavoidable CO2 emissions.”

Very “cool” indeed.
