kt-tunstall-7.jpgWhile any earth-loving fool would enjoy owning a couple hundred acres of natural beauty, singer KT Tunstall has gone even further by purchasing a 6,000 acre forest in her native Scotland.

The artist, whose latest album Drastic Fantastic was released in September, is a constant advocate for the environment and regularly perform gigs that benefit green organizations. This summer, she’ll play two concerts in forests in the UK as part of a music series organized by the Forestry Commission. The gigs will help support environmental and social programs. Her new recording studio also mimics sustainable values by incorporating 100% reclaimed wood, sheep’s wool insulation, and solar panels.

Tunstall will also be kicking off her first 18-stop U.S. tour starting in May. Much like Jack Johnson, we can expect biodiesel buses, offsets, alternative energy sources, and plenty of educational and donation opportunities for fans. To check out Ecorazzi’s interview with KT, click here.

Her full tour details are available after the fold.

Concerned about endangered animals? Stop eating them

Methods of animal conservation that support the exploitation of animals don’t exist for the animals, they exist for human profit.

Why we SHOULDN’T genetically ‘disenhance’ animals

Creating bandaid “solutions” to ethical problems we’ve created doesn’t address the issue at hand

What you can do if live exports disturb you

The outcry should go further than importation and should be directed at the fact that the animals in question were on their way to slaughter in the first place.
