Drake Going Green

Though I haven’t seen him since his days on Degrassi: The Next Generation, Aubrey Graham, better known as the rapper Drake, will be coming to Penn State April 9 as part of the 5th Annual Campus Consciousness Tour.

The tour is being billed as “eco-friendly”. This means that tour buses will be using biofuels, recycling will be promoted at shows, and artists will use reusable water bottles instead of otherwise ubiquitous disposable plastic bottles. The tour itself is an effort of Reverb, a non-profit that has “greened” the tours of acts such as Dave Matthews Band, John Legend, and Phish.

Whatever your opinions are about Drake (or openers K-OS and Francis and the Lights), I think the concept of a “green” tour is a good way to promote environmentally friendly practices.
