Green Celebs: Big Name Musicians Switch to BioDiesel Tour Buses

(Musicians KT Tunstall and Jack Johnson both use Biodiesel tour buses)

Celebrities are known for their jet-setting lifestyle. Fun and exciting – YES. Good for the environment – NO. Musicians in particular spend much of their time on the road touring the country, and many are becoming much more aware of their environmental impact.

Biodiesel is diesel fuel made from left-over vegetable or animal oil, often the big vat of oil left over after McDonald’s and other fast food restaurants cook their french fries. Biodiesel can reduce carbon emissions by up to 80%. Better yet, any diesel engine car, truck, or bus can be converted into a Biodiesel vehicle with a kit that starts at about $1,000 (which is pennies for the likes of Neil Young and Eddie Vedder).

Hats off to these Keen For Green musicians who use Biodiesel tour buses and thanks for being role models for ordinary people like me!
