Lighten Up: Dave Matthews Band
Dave Matthews Band has been touring for many years and, due in large part to the efforts of bassist Stefan Lessard, they’ve been approaching it with one eye on the road and one eye on the planet. On several fronts, sustainable systems have been put in place: organic food, water stations, sustainably made merchandising, all while engaging fans in the process. The eco-village gives out free samples of organic and sustainable products and helps to educate their audience. Here’s a band that has led the way in implementing sustainable systems that make sense for the tour while sending a strong message to their fans.
