Another musical environmentalist joining the ranks. Bryan Adams announced that he would plant a tree for each fan that attends his tour, according to the Mirror. The singer is partnering with the publication’s MillionMirrorTrees campaign to help deforestation.
Adams is currently on his tour and is reportedly trying to make it as green as possible. The singer doesn’t allow plastic water bottles and focused on plant-based catering in his backstage dressing room.
On his Shine A Light Tour, DHL will plant a tree for each ticket sold. In the backing of the MillionMirrorTrees project to stop deforestation, Adams told the Mirror, “Early on I adopted recycling, solar panels and water filters instead of plastic bottles at home. We’ve adopted the same principles on tour.” Adams said he hopes the tour plants upwards of a million trees and hopes to continue to planting crusade next year.
Adams is one of of many musical acts concerned about the environment. Coldplay recently announced they would not tour due to environmental concerns. Singer Billie Eilish is working with her ticketing group for eco-friendly measures for her fans. Singer Paul McCartney recently made a video with PETA to protest animal testing.
