dave poops on fans no more

Yet another reason to keep that hemp necklace! Dave Matthews Band will participate in a carbon dioxide emissions “offsetting” program that will eliminate pollution equivalent to 36 million average car miles, or about what the band, and its fans, have produced on the road over the past 15 years (90% of CO2 pollution from each concert comes from fan travel alone).Some might say the band has had an environmentally challenged past, however. In April 2005, the band forked over $200,000 after one of its tour bus drivers dumped up to 800 pounds of liquid human waste off a Chicago River bridge, soaking passengers on a sightseeing boat below. Crash into me!
