A series of live music events—including tours by Dave Matthews Band, Phish and Barenaked Ladies—will pair Earth-conscious concertgoers with the premier reusable water bottle to encourage fans to take positive action for the planet.
To address the huge amount of disposable water bottle waste created at concerts, Nalgene Outdoor Products, maker of reusable water bottles and food storage containers, and REVERB, a non-profit organization that creates and executes ‘green’ programs at rock concerts to reduce environmental waste, have teamed up to provide reusable water bottles to music fans during the 2015 summer and fall live music season.
“Nalgene reusable bottles are a natural fit for a tour greening partner,” explains Adam Gardner, guitarist for Guster and co-director of REVERB. “They directly help us reduce the environmental footprint of concerts in a way that fans appreciate.”
