Musicians at the top of the pop charts are increasingly embracing sustainability during their tours, meaning that if you're headed to an arena show, you should expect everything from spots to refill water bottles to contacts for local environmental efforts.
This summer, Shawn Mendes' Wonder: World Tour "will be reducing our environmental impact and emissions, as well as offsetting our unavoidable carbon footprint, to become a fully climate positive tour."
Like many other musicians, Mendes is working with Reverb, a nonprofit focused on sustainable music tours. The tour website has set targets to cut single-use plastic backstage at all possible venues, eliminate plastic bags at artist merchandise sales sites, increase recycling programs, have reusable utensils and foodservice ware backstage and on buses and have hydration stations at the show for fans.
Mendes is also encouraging fans to walk, cycle, take public transportation or car pool to concerts.
