COLUMBIA - The alternative rock band Guster hosted a discussion Wednesday on MU's campus about its tour sustainability efforts.
Guster's Adam Gardner and his wife founded the non-profit group, Reverb, back in 2004. The organization provides custom greening programs for artists' tours around the country. Gardner said they chose the name Reverb because the sustainability message starts on stage and then resonates out to fans.
As part of Guster's tours, the band uses biodiesel fuels for its buses, provide water refill stations and promote an online carpool program for its fans.
Gardner also said by the end of the year, the group hopes to create a guideline for green touring.
