Recycling for Charities & The Wireless Alliance proudly announces that we have partnered with REVERB, and will be on tour with BNL, Ben Folds, and Guster this summer! Reverb is a Portland, ME based non-profit founded in 2004 by environmentalist Lauren Sullivan and her musician husband, Adam Gardner of Guster. Reverb provides comprehensive, custom greening programs for music tours while conducting grassroots outreach and education with fans around the globe. In addition to our greening work with bands and artists, Reverb also works to move forward the sustainable practices of music industry leaders, including venues, record labels, and radio stations.
As part of Reverb’s efforts, we’ll be set up to collect old cell phones, ipods, and digital cameras at Reverb’s Eco Villages at every stop on the Last Summer on Earth tour. Participation earns you a chance to win an acoustic guitar signed by the Bare Naked Ladies! Keep your eyes peeled for Reverb’s Eco Village and bring your old phones to the show to save on shipping. If you forget to bring your phones, stop by and pick up one of our mailing labels we’ll be handing out.

BONUS: If you’re interested in going to one of the shows for free, you can try volunteering with Reverb by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org. Space is limited tho, so don’t wait! I had the chance to volunteer at Red Rocks in Colorado this past week and it was a blast! I want to give a shout out to Chris and Lara and Paige for all their efforts, as well as all the bands for supporting our efforts to keep the planet green and our tours clean!
