A new report, “Moving arts: Managing the carbon impacts of our touring – Volume 1: Bands”,
and set of online tools will help you to evaluate the impact your live music has upon the environment.
The information is produced by Julie’s Bicycle, “a broad coalition of music, theatre and scientific experts committed to making [the live music] industry green.”
There is some fascinating information here. For instance it is obvious that flying around the world to play gigs is going to have an impact on the environment. However the report also explains how the t-shirts and CD’s you sell at shows are having an equally negative effect on our planet.
