Saving The Planet Is In His Nature

Rolling out the green carpet for his upcoming tour, Jose Gonzalez will add his name to an ever growing list of musicians making efforts to curb the damage traditional touring can inflict on the planet. Teaming up with environmental non profit group Reverb, the tour will be significantly more earth friendly for a variety of reasons. Gonzalez’ rider will include biodegradable catering products, and a reduction of plastic water bottles will be facilitated by carrying reusable water bottles (imagine that!). More importantly, Gonzalez and reverb plan to calculate the CO2 footprint such a tour will leave and neutralize emissions from venue energy use, ground transportation, flights and hotel accommodations by contributing to clean renewable energy projects. I think that is worth the 50 cent supplement on general ticket purchases. In addition, fans will be able to pick up a one of a kind Jose Gonzalez sticker, the money from which will be used to purchase carbon offsets generated from the tour. Look for Reverb to have a presence as well. - David Pitz
