Last night, well after dark, Brian drove his truck into a secret entrance of the Qwest Center in Omaha. When he emerged he had a truck load of garbage. Or was it?
As many Omaha fans know, the Dave Matthews Band played at the Qwest Center last night. A few weeks before the show, we were contacted by Reverb about supplying food for the catering company or picking up food waste after the show. Reverb works with musicians and artists to enable them to be as environmentally responsible as they can while on tour. We jumped at the chance to be a part of such a brilliant program, so we headed out to get food waste late last night.
The bags (compostable, of course) were filled to the brim and there were over ten of them! That is a huge amount of product that would have otherwise ended up in the landfill. Instead, we brought it back to the farm where it fed:
14 Guinea Hogs
50-ish chickens and turkeys (and one duck)
and thousands of red wigglers!
What was left (which wasn’t much), was added to the compost.
And in the end, this was all that was left (which we recycled).
I guess even Rock Stars like Teddy Grahams.
Our thanks to Dave Matthews Band for being such responsible artists and to Reverb for helping artists be green, even on tour.
