You can use their online carpooling service to get to the venue, and now, when you hit the parking lot at the Dave Matthews Band concert this summer, keep your eyes open for customized recycling stations. Every time you throw in a bottle or can, you are automatically entered for a chance to win a ticket upgrade to the front row!! Nice! Nothing like a smoking hot incentive to get people to take action.

These stations have me wondering though. When you recycle, you are issued a ballot with a code and web address. You can enter after the show your vote for the top three songs from that night’s show, which will be placed on a live digital album at the end of the tour. Hmmm? I hope it’s not “recycle a can, get a piece of paper”. I”m guessing they’ve thought this through and it’s all good. I hope to be there next month at the Gorge in Washington State checking out the greening. “What would you say?”

[Editors Note: This green initiatives was setup as a result of DMB's teaming with green music org MusicMatters. They band is also working with Reverb. You can check out their official page here.]

[Update: We received some additional information on those ballots people receive for their recycling. "The ballot cards that people are getting are made with post consumer materials, soy ink and they are the size of a business card. They are completely recyclable." Awesome.]
