Sheryl Crow's Eco Tour

She is so cool!
Jai sent me an email about this recently.
I'll find it & post the information.
Really neat stuff!

Sheryl’s list of backstage eco-specifications include the following:

  • Reusable water containers/water coolers (no single use plastic bottles)
  • Recycling containers for glass, paper, plastic & aluminum (at concert venue & backstage)
  • Organic, locally-sourced food served on reusable plates (no petroleum-based items)
  • Meals from a restaurant in planet-friendly containers (styrofoam use limited or avoided)
  • Snacks must include multiple flavors of hummus, chips & salsa, fresh/dried fruit, veggies, nuts & “good quality dark organic chocolate”

Eco-suggestions for the concert venue include:

  • purchasing sustainable energy credits
  • installing energy efficient CFLs
  • refraining from idling vehicles
  • using chemical-free, planet-friendly cleaning/paper supplies

SC also offers purchasing suggestions on where green products are available (i.e. Target, Whole Foods & Repurpose Compostables). "Crow is one of those rare artists who feels that no matter your position on global warming, “you still have an obligation to leave this planet better than you found it.”

Truly walking the talk!
