REVERB Venue Programs
In 2016, after greening thousands of music events at venues all over the country, REVERB decided to build on our knowledge and expertise and expand our environmental efforts to include season-long programs at four partner venues. With the support of these venues – Xfinity Center in Mansfield, MA, Darling’s Waterfront Pavilion in Bangor, ME, and Maine State Pier & Thompson’s Point in Portland, ME – we were able to provide free filtered water to fans, support several local non-profits and reach over a million fans.
In Maine, fans sent a strong message to Senator Susan Collins in support of clean energy through a post card campaign. In addition, thousands of concert-goers supported a local solar petition. In Mansfield, Massachusetts, fans helped feed over 500 families in need. And between all four programs, you helped us raise $52,000 for local nonprofits.
By encouraging fans to ditch disposables by offering free, filtered, local water and custom Nalgene bottles, 36,000 single-use plastic water bottles weren’t used at these venues. That’s 36,000 bottles NOT going into landfills, oceans, or our wild places.
