Reduce Waste by Brining Your Own Bottle to Live Events

Jack Johnson, ALO, G. Love and Sustainable Concerts Working Group have launched a campaign to help reduce waste by using refillable bottles on tour.

Monday, April 22 was Earth Day in 2019, and this manageable plan connects well with inspiring others to reduce pollution.


Venues that partner with the campaign will focus on providing water for guests with refillable containers. Connect with the BYOBottle campaign via their main website

Artists who have signed on in support of BYOBottle include Ben Harper, Bob Weir, Bonnie Raitt, Dave Matthews Band, Dawes, Dead & Company, Empire of the Sun, Flume, Jack Johnson, Jackson Browne, Keb’ Mo’, Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real, The Lumineers, Maroon 5, Steve Earle, Steven Van Zandt, Wilco, and more.

“There is a powerful wave of momentum building to reduce plastic pollution. BYOBottle is a campaign that the entire music industry can unite around, and everyone I’ve been talking with is excited to join and be part of a solution. Expectations are changing around what makes a positive and successful music event, and sustainability is a huge part of that. I’m excited to help show what concerts can look like if artists work together with fans and venues or festivals to reduce plastic waste.” – Jack Johnson
