Tame Impala launches campaign to reduce environmental footprint on tour

Tame Impala has announced a partnership with the environmental organization Reverb to make the band’s upcoming tour more eco-friendly.

Some of the sustainable actions the Australian psych-rock outfit will be taking while on the road include neutralizing carbon emissions by “funding projects that directly eliminate greenhouse gases,” donating unused catering and hotel toiletries to local shelters, and using reusable water bottles and insulated mugs for the band members and crew.

Tame Impala is currently touring the U.S. behind the new album The Slow Rush, which was released in February.

Artists including Billie Eilish, The 1975, The Lumineers and Dave Matthews Band have also teamed up with Reverb to reduce their environmental footprint. Meanwhile, Coldplay has pledged to not tour until it can be “actively beneficial” to the environment.
